Episode Description

The buzz: “I’m not the woman president of Harvard. I’m the president of Harvard” (Drew Gilpin Faust at WEF 2015). The World Economic Forum has been studying global readiness for gender because it’s as much an economic problem as a global talent necessity. Yet, despite continued program focus, research, and commitments from political and business leaders, the needle has not budged; in some cases, it moved backwards. In a reality where it will be another 217 years for women in the workplace to become equal in all ways to men, it’s time to talk about what’s working. The experts speak. Desi Kimmins, Korn Ferry: “Between stimulus and response there is space. In that space is our power to choose our response...” (Viktor E. Frankl). Nancy Joyce, PDT Global: “…Make one’s center inside of oneself….” (Edith Wharton). Dr. Patti Fletcher, SAP SuccessFactors: “Women are in a position now to voice their opinion…” (Snoop Dogg). Join us for Beyond the Rhetoric: 217 Years To Gender Equality at Work?
