Leadership at the Top: A New Paradigm for Parity

The numbers don't lie. Women in the workforce make up 46% of entry level professional positions but only 29% of vice presidents and 19% of C-suite executives. Tonight, we'll take a look at what accounts for this gap and share what you can do in your career to make the leap from entry level to CEO.

Tune in on Wednesday, June 14th at 6:30 pm ET when Gloria Feldt, President & Co-Founder of Take The Lead interviews four amazing women committed to removing gender inequality at the executive level.

We'll be joined by
Jewelle Bickford, co-chair of Paradigm for Parity, Trish Gyorey, Partner at McKinsey & Company, Nina McLemore, CEO & Owner of Nina Mclemore LLC, and Beatrice Opoku-Asare, Global Director of Inclusion and Diversity at Newmont Mining Corporation as they discuss what steps we need to take to get more women into corporate leadership.
