VANCOUVER: Women in the Workplace: Diversity & Inclusion
Telus GardenMay 25, 2018
Are you frustrated to learn that in many industries, there are more men named John in leadership positions than there are women?
Join us to learn about McKinsey & Company’s research on diversity & inclusion and how some companies are approaching the challenges facing women in the workplace. Using this research as a jumping-off point, we will explore more broadly the importance of diversity in a time of increasing complexity and disruption. The evening will be highly interactive, inviting you to reflect and share your experience and what you can do, both within your organization and as an individual, to embrace greater diversity and multi-perspectivity as a source of competitive advantage.
