2017 ushered in a renewed focus on the imbalance of power between women and men across many industries. At times, trying to rebalance the scales can seem overwhelming. But some companies are making a difference. Our panel of seasoned professional women will describe what their companies have done to move the needle. They’ll share real stories about what has worked and where we need to keep trying. Most importantly, they’ll help us understand what these changes in gender relationships have meant to the men and women in their organization.
