Why and How Women Mean Business

Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Geneva

January 14, 2013: 6:00 PM - 8:45 PM

It is a great pleasure to invite you, on behalf of the INSEAD Alumni Association Switzerland, to an Evening Conference & Cocktail in Geneva on January 14th.

Never before has there been such attention to the economic importance of women. As companies begin to understand the WHY of better gender balance, they are still struggling with HOW to make it happen. While women are picking up the majority of university degrees around the globe, they still think of themselves as a disempowered minority. Is gender balance in the work place a myth or soon to become a reality?

Come and listen to the latest thinking on gender balance at the upcoming conference given by Avivah Wittenberg Cox, author of HOW Women Mean Business (MANPOWER Best Book of the Year prize in 2009), and co-author of the best-seller: WHY Women Mean Business.
