    Gender in Business and Leadership

    Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 12:00 PM until 1:00 PMCentral Daylight Time

    How do gender issues impact today's workplace? How can business leaders create a climate in which gender differences enhance rather than challenge individual performance and teamwork? 

    These are just two of the important questions included in this webinar addressing key gender-related issues that impact society, and in particular, the workplace. Employment and advancement opportunity, leadership and organizational style preferences, and work/family balance concerns are among the topics which will be considered in this session. Leaders who are sensitive to the ways gender-related issues impact the workforce are better able to shape constructive dialogue among coworkers. This sensitivity can serve as the foundation for a healthy and diverse community of employees and managers. Join us for a conversation with business leader and educator Bridgette Mahan to consider the goal of gender equality and what that really means in the workplace today.

    This webinar is appropriate for:
    • Individuals interested in building their leadership skills 
    • Managers wanting to build gender equality perspective into their leadership style 
    • Anyone wishing to learn more about gender issues and leadership 
    By the end of the webinar you will:
    • Understand the key gender-related issues in the context of the business world
    • Discover how organizations benefit when leaders are open to discussing and addressing gender issues as they arise 
    • Acquire leadership strategies to cultivate a work atmosphere that acknowledges and builds on gender differences rather than ignores them
