About the Event

There is a lot of talk about the benefits of a gender diverse workforce. Increasingly, CEO’s are including gender diversity in their top priorities. However its completely understandable if you’re thinking “blah, blah, blah” right now. Because there is a LOT of talk and very little high impact action when it comes to advancing women into the C-Suite. Or is there?
