Day Three, Tuesday, June 25, 2019
7:45 am - 8:30 am Breakfast
8:35 am - 9:20 am Women in the C-Suite
In the past decade we have seen a greater prevalence of gender diversity in executive positions. While this has been a fantastic start, it needs to be taken further. A study by the IMF found that women comprise less than 20% of executive board members at financial institutions. In addition, a study by Cision PR found that 77% of American C-Suite Executives admit they have a diversity problem and yet many aren’t sure how to remedy this. By starting a discussion and acting on this issue we can help create a push to be more inclusive in the C-suite. Including diversified perspectives helps us learn and grow as business leaders as we absorb new ideas and viewpoints to enhance our overall schema.
