WIL (Women in Leadership) Economic Forum, China


I will be speaking on an expert panel at this conference in Shanghai on the 27 September.  The subject is;

“Does diversity improve financial and managerial performance?”
As the economy becomes increasingly global, our workforce becomes increasingly diverse. D&I is no longer a topic for HR, nor is it more political correctness than business concern. Companies with a higher proportion of women on boards and in leadership positions exhibit a higher degree of organisation, above-average operating margins and higher valuations. However, attracting and retaining more women who meet the challenges of labour markets’ change, engaging men in diversity implementation and calculating economic growth are considered major challenges preventing D&I from succeeding.
This panel discusses how employers can equip women with the desired skills to address specific inclusion challenges through cross-cultural competence. It also covers how employers are supporting women and how this affects overall company performance.
Viewpoint one: Measurable financial impact of D&I
Viewpoint two: Engaging middle managers in diversity initiatives
Viewpoint three: Retaining and growing ‘Gen Y’ women
