About the Session

A recent Credit Suisse report found that more women in decision-making roles continue to generate higher market returns and superior profits. It is one of many research studies to find that gender diversity leads to better performance. However, women are still underrepresented in leadership positions and continue to encounter unconscious bias in the workplace. In their annual review of women in the workplace, LeanIn.org and McKinsey & Company found women are underrepresented at every level and face obstacles on the path to senior leadership. During this session, find out how women’s equality can lead to economic growth and how strong female leadership can provide financial returns and impact the ability of men and women leaders to work together effectively. With all of this research providing clear evidence of the value of gender diversity in leadership, why is it that healthcare, like other organizations, have fewer women in the C-suite?

Seminar 59 will be held at the Palmer House Hilton; includes a 15-minute break.
