Mar 15, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Equitable upskilling is one of the most effective ways to speed up our economic recovery. Previous studies already showed that achieving gender parity in the labor force could boost the U.S. economy by $789 billion. And Pipeline Equity’s research across 4,161 organizations in 29 countries, found that companies enjoy a 1% to 2% increase in revenue for every 10% increase in gender equity. Its founder and gender economist Katica Roy will share insights on how intersectional gender equity drives economic growth and how we can ensure everyone has access to adequate training for the jobs of tomorrow. She will share the numbers behind these ideas and offer tactics that company leaders, policymakers and everyday professionals can take to make a difference in the pursuit of equity for all.
