In this conversation, Laura and her colleague, Ursula Jorch share candidly their experience with gender equity throughout their career, and what they believe we can each do every day to contribute to closing the gap.
The statistics around gender equity are startling. Recent data indicates the wage gap is widening even as more seats are filled by women. And the majority voice across almost all spheres and board rooms is white and male.
Diverse perspective shifts performance and thus results upward. Research shows that this isn’t a small shift – it is an economic game changer.
And women with influence, financial wealth, and power ripple that into their communities and cascade it down through their organizations. Win / Win.
Enjoy this dialog as we grapple with the difficulty of finding our voice and the essentialness of doing it anyway.
