Featuring Katica Roy, founder and CEO of Pipeline, and W. Brad Johnson, a professor of psychology at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Monday, March 8, 12:00 pm EST
Businesses that close their gender equity gap enjoy increased profitability, productivity, and innovation; a greater ability to attract and retain top talent; and revenue gains. Yet many companies are moving backwards in addressing gender equity, and gender disparities are only widening.
This disparity is often due to zero-sum bias, where men believe (incorrectly) they must sacrifice for women to earn a place at the table. But men must be involved in making progress toward gender equity; without them, diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts will fall short.
On Monday, March 8, International Women’s Day, HBR will host a live webinar, “Six Strategies for Moving the Needle on Gender Equity.” This webinar will feature Katica Roy, a gender economist and founder and CEO of Pipeline, the first gender-equity app on Salesforce’s AppExchange, and W. Brad Johnson, a professor of psychology at the U.S. Naval Academy. Roy and Johnson co-authored the recent HBR article “Gender Equity Is Not Zero Sum.”
In this webinar, Roy and Johnson will discuss:
What zero-sum bias is, and why it is a barrier to gender equity
Six strategies to help organizations overcome zero-sum bias among male employees
How these strategies quantify the economic gains from gender equity, hold leaders accountable for change, and expose misperceived social norms
If your organization wants to achieve gender equity but isn’t making enough progress, this International Women’s Day (March 8) please join Katica Roy, W. Brad Johnson, and HBR to learn practical, effective actions your organization can take.
