Engaging Men, Advancing Women Workshop
Why do women currently hold only between 10 and 15 percent of C-suite positions in corporate America? Why are we having the same conversations about women’s role in the workplace as we did 20 years ago?
These are some of the questions that “Engaging Men to Advance Women in Business” seeks to address at the workshop on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at Columbia University's Faculty House (64 Morningside Drive, New York, NY 10027). The workshop will bring together male and female executives from a variety of companies. Thought-leaders and executives who lead efforts to engage men in diversity and inclusion initiatives will share their strategies and best practices for collaborative leadership. At the workshop, attendees will participate in several polling exercises, answer questions about their perceptions of how many men in their companies are engaged in gender diversity, explore the effectiveness of their companies’ efforts in engaging men, and highlight metrics for tracking progress toward gender equality.
Bring your allies! For a limited time -- bring 3 members of your team for the price of 2! E-mail us today to register your team.
Please note that all workshop attendees should arrive by 11:00 AM.
