From the Asia Society website:
The Women’s Leadership Series (WLS) celebrates influential, diverse women making a substantive impact in both the business and culture arenas, locally and globally.
While the percentage of women in C-suite positions continues to rise, it still stagnates significantly with less than 20% of the leaders in the U.S. being female. A recent study from McKinsey & Company estimates that at the current rate, it will take more than 100 years to reach C-suite gender parity. Moreover, representation of minority females in the C-suite is even more difficult to find. How do women get on the path to senior leadership? Is gender diversity important for business? How can company culture help or deter women from reaching their full leadership potential? Keynote Lulu C. Wang joins Asia Society to share personal experiences and challenges of her climb to the top in corporate America.
Mia Mends, CEO of Sodexo Benefits and Rewards Services, US, and Anne Taylor, managing partner of Deloitte’s Houston practice, will also be participating in the discussion. The panel will be moderated by Gina Luna, Chairman of JPMorgan Chase in the Houston Region.
The goal of WLS is to inspire, educate, and empower women by learning from established leaders across the globe. All are welcome to attend.
