How men and women can create a better and smarter world
Gender equality is an issue of international economic and social importance that is critical for ensuring we have the right balance of thinking and perspective around the table. For too long, women alone have led the way advocating for improvements when so many men hold the power and influence to help advance this work. Rather than increase the isolation factor such as having female-only events, or, men talking among themselves about the gender issue, it’s time we recognize and embrace the fact that men and women leading together bring different but complementary skills to the table that positively impact bottom line performance.
Rebecca presents on ways men and women can disrupt old narratives and break down barriers for creating two-way partnerships that co-create mutual value. This calls for men and women to engage in a united voice as partners and as leaders who have a shared purpose.
