TRENDING: WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP
Unique speakers to address the unique challenges & opportunities for women.
Placing more women in leadership roles is essential. But how far into this year will a woman have to work to earn what her male colleagues earned last year? What can we do to close the gaps and break down the barriers?
GLOBAL STUDIES SHOW companies who employ more senior women make more money. In the US, women under 30 out-earn and out-perform their male peers. So how come so many are hitting the proverbial wall of kids vs. career and leaving the workforce? How do companies retain the extraordinary value of women in the workforce? How do we collectively up the percentage of Fortune 500 CEOs? And how can we use women’s intuition … strategically?
