About the presentation

Women graduate from colleges and graduate programs at the same rate as men, but five years later, our representation in executive ranks is less than 20% (and in some areas, less than 5%).

This talk takes an honest look at what women do to hold themselves back, and how they can adapt to get into positions of power and successfully compete on a playing field designed by men to reward their own achievements. It also explores what companies must do to recruit, retain and reward a gender diverse workforce, which is the only way to survive in the next decade and beyond.
