In the third installment of our Effective Development Strategies for Increasing Women in Leadership series, experts from The Conference Board and Korn Ferry will take a deeper dive into impactful actions/practices implemented by organizations that are successfully moving the needle on women in leadership.

Join our expert panel, which will include the Senior Vice President of Human Relations for McCormick and Company, to receive:

  • A deeper understanding about the current barriers keeping women out of leadership roles;
  • Information on approaches other leading companies are using to accelerate the advancement of women; and
  • Insight into how McCormick’s “Ignite” program led to an increased number of promotions and expanded responsibilities for its female leaders

Who Should Attend: Talent practitioners in diversity and inclusion, talent management, coaching and leadership development as well as those in the organization seeking greater gender parity for their business.
