  • 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 Nov 28 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 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

  • GDPR Puts Your Translation Supply Chain at Risk. Are you Ready to Respond?
    GDPR Puts Your Translation Supply Chain at Risk. Are you Ready to Respond? Katie Rigby-Brown, VP Global Financial Services, SDL, Tim Walters, Ph.D., Digital Clarity Group Dec 5 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The EU GDPR is the new European framework for data protection, designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe and give greater protection and rights to individuals.

    This new regulation requires organizations to be held to greater accountability for how they handle personal data. And because it applies to any organization that collects, manages and processes personal information and monitors the behavior of European citizens regardless of their location, it applies to organizations around the globe.

    To date, much focus has been placed on the impact this will have on the role of marketers. However, with the vast amount of data sent out to third parties for translation, the translation process may put many firms at risk of non-compliance - and potential fines of 4% of annual turnover.

    In this webinar, Tim Walters of Digital Clarity Group and SDL’s Katie Rigby-Brown will share practical insights for organizations that suspect or know that they send personal information out as part of the translation process.

    What you will learn:

    •Key factors you need to know about the EU data protection
    regulation changes.
    •Why language can pose a hidden organizational risk.
    •Insights into how other organizations are securing their translation
    supply chain.
    •Questions you need to ask your Language Service Providers to
    ensure their compliance standards are not exposing you to risk.

    All registrants will receive a free copy of SDL's “Translation Supply Chain Readiness Assessment” to help identify potential areas of risk in their organizations.
