Advancing women's leadership is a business imperative. But what isn’t often discussed is the courage required of stakeholders to effect this change, to intervene in the face of pressure and pushback, and to shine a light on disparity.
During this webcast, experts from The Conference Board and Korn Ferry will discuss the pivotal points of opportunity to increase the representation of women in the leadership pipeline. 

Join this discussion to:

  • Gain an understanding of the current representation of women in leadership
  • Hear insights into the pivotal career points where the progression of women is often stalled
  • Discover best practices to increase the representation of women at all levels of leadership and what other companies are doing to successfully implement this change  

Who Should Attend: Talent practitioners in diversity and inclusion, talent management, coaching and leadership development as well as those in the organization seeking greater gender parity for their business.
