Women and Leadership Workshop (Brought to you by Pathbuilders)

For over a decade, researchers have seen a link

between the representation of women in senior

leadership and the financial performance of

organizations – yet, there has been little movement of

the needle with respect to women in senior executive

positions. Together in this session, we will explore

powerful data to support not just what the numbers

show but why gender-diverse senior teams are more

successful. We will simplify the complex concepts

that limit women’s mobility and highlight the key

drivers that enable organizations and women to make

the needle move.

Facilitator and expert – Helene Lollis, President and CEO, Pathbuilders

ways to go about securing financing, creative

solutions for overcoming financing obstacles and

get started or move your project along. Hosted by
