      #WhyWait – Driving Gender-balance and New Opportunities for Women Today Bobbie Carlton, Founder of Innovation Women Recorded: Mar 6 2018 5:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    • Last year, the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, best known for the annual Davos gatherings, added 47 years to the time necessary to reach workplace equality. According to the WEF, in 2017, gender parity ‘shifted into reverse” and it will take 217 YEARS for disparities in the pay and employment opportunities of men and women to end. It is the first time since 2006 that “slow but steady progress” toward parity has halted.
