How can companies close the gender gap in today’s workplace?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women occupy only 27% of chief executive jobs and just over one-fourth of computer and information systems management roles. And while women have made strides in various industries, organizations still struggle to build inclusive teams that fairly represent women in positions traditionally dominated by men.
In honor of Women’s History Month, leaders from General Assembly, ModelExpand, and the Career & Personal Development Institute will lead an action-packed discussion on how we can effectively engage and cultivate teams that support and celebrate inclusiveness at all levels.
You’ll leave this session with:
A deeper understanding of the challenges women professionals and employers face in breaking down gender barriers at work.
Expert insights on the negative ripple effects of unconscious biases in company culture.
Tips for facilitating open and honest dialogue around workplace inequities.
Strategies for incorporating gender diversity into your talent pipeline and championing inclusion in your organization.
