  • An Inside Look: Women in the Workplace 2017
    An Inside Look: Women in the Workplace 2017 Rachel Thomas, President of the Sheryl Sandberg & Dave Goldberg Family Foundation Recorded: Dec 14 2017 34 mins
    Join us for a look inside the Women in the Workplace 2017 study with Rachel Thomas, president of LeanIn.Org. Rachel will provide an overview of this year’s key findings, which show that women remain underrepresented at every level in corporate America, despite earning more college degrees than men for thirty years and counting. There is a pressing need to do more, and most organizations realize this: company commitment to gender diversity is at an all-time high for the third year in a row.

    Despite this commitment, progress continues to be too slow—and may even be stalling. One of the most powerful reasons for this is a simple one: we have blind spots when it comes to diversity, and we can’t solve problems that we don’t see or understand clearly.

    Women in the Workplace 2017 is a comprehensive study of the state of women in corporate America. This research is part of a long-term partnership between LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Company to give organizations the information they need to promote women’s leadership and foster gender equality.

    This year 222 companies employing more than 12 million people shared their pipeline data and completed a survey of HR practices. In addition, more than 70,000 employees completed a survey designed to explore their experiences regarding gender, opportunity, career, and work-life issues. To our knowledge, this makes Women in the Workplace the largest study of its kind.

  • The Leadership Gender Gap: Strategies for the Career Advancement of Women
    The Leadership Gender Gap: Strategies for the Career Advancement of Women Dr. Shawn Andrews CEO, Andrews Research International Recorded: Nov 28 2017 63 mins
    Women account for more than 50% of the U.S. Labor force and 60% of college graduates in both the U.S. and Europe. Yet, women hold only 5.0% of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies. Women encounter many barriers to success which limits career advancement. These barriers include unconscious biases, structural obstacles, self-limiting mindsets, work-life balance priorities, and emotional intelligence and gender differences - which lead men and women to approach virtually every aspect of business differently. It’s essential to understand the issues that keep women from advancing as part of your talent management program. Dr. Shawn Andrews will provide strategies to help minimize these barriers and advance your career.

    Learning Objectives:
    - Explore the scope of the leadership gender gap
    - Examine barriers that limit women’s career advancement
    - Identify emotional intelligence attributes and their impact on leadership
    - Explore how gender differences impact perception and promotion in the workplace
    - Apply strategies to advance your career and improve leadership diversity in your organization
  • Creating a movement: Inspiring girls to shape the future with technology
    Creating a movement: Inspiring girls to shape the future with technology Isabelle Ringnes, founder TENK, #Shesgotthis, podcast 20-30 Recorded: Nov 28 2017 47 mins
    A few years ago no one was talking about the impact of technology in Norway. When I moved back from New York in 2014, I felt like I was the only woman interested. Knowing that technology would disrupt and change virtually every industry and facet of our society, I felt like I needed to take action.

    This led to founding TENK: the Technology network for women. Through TENK I have written and spoken for thousands of people on the impact of technology with a special focus on the importance of diversity and inclusion in the industry.

    TENK has worked to inspire women of all ages to lean in and see the opportunities in technology as opposed to shying away from the new and unknown. Girls have been given arenas in which they have been inspired to learn hands on about the many opportunities technology provides from a human centric and creative point of view. TENK believes that the only way to increase girls' interest and participation in technology is by giving it to them on their own terms.

    Isabelle has also helped found #Shesgotthis (#hunspanderer) which twice became a successful national campaign reaching more than 2 million people online. This campaign worked on addressing subtle discrimination and gender stereotypes in the workplace.

    Join this webinar to learn how to create a movement, set the agenda and how to spike girls' interest in technology.
