About The Conference
Engage to Elevate
Before the global pandemic hit, multicultural women were leaving - or planning to leave - corporate America in record numbers, citing bias and lack of support as main culprits. According to the Working Mother Research Institute’s “On the Verge” study, 50% of these women were considering leaving their companies within a year. On top of the bias and lack of support, it’s known that multicultural women are also disproportionately impacted socio-economically, and struggle with building strategic relationship capital that would ultimately catapult their careers. Now, as we navigate our new virtual reality, multicultural women are faced with even greater challenges than before.
Having the tools needed to lead effectively in these trying times is ever-more critical, and as we navigate our new virtual reality, multicultural women are faced with even greater challenges than before. Our studies show that women of color bring higher levels of education, ambition, and diverse ideas to the workplace, so how can we ensure they stay engaged and connected? How can multicultural women stay steadfast in their leadership journeys and continue to build networks and new skills in unsteady circumstances? It’s now more important than ever to build up cultural leadership competencies that are truly inclusive, and for organizations to provide tools that will re-skill and re-energize women for the challenges ahead. It’s all about getting and staying engaged in these forward-thinking, inclusion conversations, and elevating our practices to be innovative and excel in our current times.
