About the Webinar
- The 2014 campaign for Procter & Gamble’s Always brand sparked conversations all over the world around what it means to do something “Like a Girl.” Praised for its insight and impact, the campaign asked the question: “When did ‘Like a Girl’ become an insult?” Women bring a unique — and much-needed — constellation of skills and abilities to their roles as people leaders in the workplace. Current research shows, however, that women are overworked and under-recognized. Dramatically underrepresented in leadership, they are leaving their companies at the highest rate in years.
In this lively and thought-provoking webinar, we will explore: why we need women leaders; some of the challenges and opportunities that women leaders face; the larger context of “imposter syndrome;” and concrete steps organizations can take to drive progress on gender equity.
