How Top Organizations are Growing Strong with Women in Leadership

March 12, 2019 10:00 AM ET [10:00] (New York), 02:00 PM UTC [14:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter

Over the next decade, women will have significant economic and financial impact as consumers and investors, yet women hold only 29% of all leadership roles. Organizations that display an above-average level of gender diversity outperform diversity laggards and are more likely to have sustained, profitable growth. Similarly, these organizations often display integrating diverse thinking in their people strategy and their product and business decision-making processes.

While diversity isn’t always easy to measure, it is nonetheless imperative to consider the value and potential impact that diversity of thought can bring.
