#Womens Empowerment


BSR and Sodexo will host a webinar reflecting on 2017’s reckoning on the barriers facing women in workplaces around the globe and exploring how, collectively, we can reposition 2018 as the year of opportunities for women’s advancement and empowerment. Specifically, we will explore the following questions:

  • How are companies responding to the ongoing sexual harassment revelations globally?
  • How can companies build the internal case for increased attention and focus on women’s empowerment?
  • What are opportunities to partner or collaborate on solutions?
  • How can companies use this moment to affirm and strengthen their commitment to women’s empowerment?

Speakers

  • Dr. Rohini Anand, Senior Vice President, Corporate Responsibility and Global Chief Diversity Officer, Sodexo
  • Marianne Cooper, Sociologist, Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University
  • Aditi Mohapatra, Managing Director, BSR
