TOPIC: That’s What She Said. The national dialogue around closing the gender gap in the workplace is at a watershed moment. As stories keep breaking across all industries, thoughtful women and men are wondering: how can we solve this problem together. If this moment has taught us one thing, it is that gender parity, opportunity and respect are not just female problems. At this event, Joanne Lipman, veteran journalist and author of THAT’S WHAT SHE SAID, will share why men can and must join the conversation to bring equity to our workplaces. She will also offer steps that women and men can take right now to move toward a solution. With probing questions posed by author, workplace and women’s expert Debbie Epstein Henry, Joanne will address issues including unconscious bias, the respect gap, “mansplaining,” the gender wage gap and much more—and explain how to remedy these behaviors so that women can gain greater opportunity and success at work. Attendees will leave this session with illuminating anecdotes, current data, and personal tales from Joanne’s own journey to put words into action and demonstrate the benefits to businesses that bridge the gender divide by having women and men work together toward this essential goal.
