14th Annual Women's Leadership Conference

New Strategies to Develop Women and Men Change Leaders on Gender Parity
MAY 01 - 02, 2018 | NEW YORK MARRIOTT MARQUIS | NEW YORK, NY

May 01 - 02, 2018

About The Conference

Change is coming. And patience is running out for those who don’t get it; even the most successful companies and business leaders are vulnerable to reputational, legal, and business loss for failing to effectively battle gender bias and advance gender parity. But for those organizations ahead of the curve, the rewards are great: drawing from a bigger and more engaged talent pool; benefiting from the diverse perspectives that drive innovation; better connecting with those making the overwhelming majority of household purchasing decisions.

Where will your organization be in this time of change – leading it or being left behind? Bring your team to the Conference Board’s 14th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference to learn from the latest research, strategies and case studies on how to grow a culture of leaders and change agents – women and men – on gender parity.

  • Gain insights from cutting-edge research on what can generate – or hold back – true buy-in on gender parity among men and women in your organization
