In a widely publicized initiative few years ago, eBay embarked on a journey to bring more women into its top ranks. Senior executives at the firm discovered the investment yielded substantial bottomline and cultural benefits. Despite these findings there are still far too few women gaining entry into the C-suite. It appears a contributing factor to this reality is that women are not receiving enough opportunities to gain the key work experiences viewed as necessary to gain entry into the C-suite. In this session, participants will:
- Examine how companies are identifying and empowering high powered women
- Outline the contributions and cultural benefits of promoting talented women
- Evaluate how to embark on a continuous plan to close the gender gap
