Additional Details

Why do you think the statue of the “fearless girl” has created such excitement and controversy? Do you believe the issue of gender bias matters or not? Do you think that women have made progress in moving up the management ladder since the 1970’s? How does progress in the US with representation of women in senior management roles compare with the situation in other countries? What is the experience for women in corporate America in 2017?

Join us as we consider what current data trends tell us about the advancement of women in US corporations and why it matters. Many factors continue to be obstacles to the advancement of women leaders. Research suggests that some obstacles are structural and societal, leading some commentators to suggest that there is “second generation” gender bias at play in organizations. Other obstacles are highly personal in nature, inhering in behaviors, routines and psychological phenomena encountered in the workplace.

Our focus in this seminar will be to consider what can we learn from the women who have made it to the top of their organizations, and how employer companies can manage obstacles for the mutual benefit of women managers, companies and other stakeholders.

This event is free and open to the public.
