Men and Women at Work:

Creating New Workplaces Where Gender Diversity Thrives

An interactive presentation by Anna Marie Valerio, Ph.D.

Research shows that companies with the highest representation of women in leadership roles have better financial performance. But these companies are still not the norm – why not? Companies are now starting to explore the ways that “unconscious biases” undermine efforts toward achieving greater gender diversity in the workplace.

This interactive presentation will discuss a range of actions that companies and their leaders can take to create organizations that reflect the diversity of the global environment.  It will include tips and strategies that enable men and women alike to improve their leadership competencies and build relationships that foster success.

Sunday, November 2 from 1 to 3 p.m.
