Date & Time:

11:30 am – 1:00 pm


The “war for talent” is pervasive, with even top companies fighting to attract and retain talent in a competitive labor environment.

At the same time, executives in every industry are expressing a desire for a diverse and inclusive workplace, with hiring and retaining women existing as just one pillar in many I&D strategies. However, the data shows that this goal may be difficult for employers: nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out of the labor force in the past year alone (February 2021).

The war for talent simply cannot be won without a focused effort from organizations to recruit, engage, and develop women in the workplace.

We invite you to join us for a discussion on creating an environment that is desirable to women employees: flexible, connected, and professionally and personally fulfilling. We will focus on the stories of strategies that allow women to confidently remain in the workforce and provide a strong impact for clients, community, industry, and, ultimately, one another.


  • Identifying and removing barriers to retaining women in your organization
  • Creating a culture of engagement
  • Developing leaders
  • Action steps to keep women in the workplace

Our featured panelists will share their experiences both personally and within their workplace.
