Virtual ESMT Open Lecture with Susan Hodgkinson

"The good fight – winning gender equity at work"

The data is in: diverse teams create powerful business results and increase innovation. Leaders who become skilled at leading inclusively stand out for their success; those who continue to avoid it risk finding themselves obsolete. So why are the numbers on inclusion not improving? Drawing from three years of research, award-winning executive coach Susan Hodgkinson shares why we must move past labels like unconscious bias to bring new insights into the depth of the resistance and to truly engage teams. She then presents seven tools – many of them innovative and new – that organizations can use to genuinely advance women and all “the others” still on the outside.
