Driving Gender Equality in the Workplace
4:30 pm - 7:30 pm | Program will begin at 5:30 pm
Recent studies show women represent 45% of the entry level professional employee population. Yet, St. Catherine University’s 2015 Minnesota Census of Women in Corporate Leadership reveals that, within Minnesota’s 100 largest publicly-held corporations, women make up a mere 15.5% and 19.4% of the directors and executive officers, respectively. We’ve been having this conversation for years, so what’s it going to really take to improve these statistics?
Our final event of 2016 features an executive panel who will speak to what companies and executives are doing to accelerate women’s careers, promote more women into senior and executive leadership roles, and achieve gender equality in the workplace. We’ll be joined by Mara Swan, EVP, Global Strategy & Talent with ManpowerGroup, Tammy Wojtasiak, Partner with PwC, and Doug Johnson, President & Executive Recruiter with Valor Partners. Leading the discussion will be Rebecca Hawthorne, Ph.D., with St. Catherine University and co-author of the Minnesota Census of Women in Corporate Leadership.
Some of the questions we’ll be answering include:
As we tackle this decades-old challenge, we challenge YOU to invite a male colleague to join you as your guest. One way we can drive change is by including our male colleagues, co-workers, and managers in this all-too-important discussion!
