Power Moves:
Leading Diversity in the Workplace

For today’s global businesses diverse teams are shown to be more creative, innovative, and profitable; and companies are learning more and more they can draw upon our nation’s diversity to strengthen their bottom lines and achieve an ideal workplace and society. In this way, diversity is a key ingredient to growing a strong and inclusive economy that’s built to last, yet we still have to overcome trust and cultural differences to truly embrace inclusion. We’ll gather business leaders and academics who can speak to why these power moves matter and look to inspire today’s generation of executives to follow suit.

Changing the Culture from Within

For today's executives changing the culture from within requires action and movement, not just a mandate. We are at an inflection point on the issue of diversity that requires deep organizational introspection on what got us here and what we can collectively do to move forward. In a thoughtful discussion about just how this can, and is being done, we'll feature some of the executives leading the charge to change their cultures from the inside.

To Empowerment and Beyond

In order to achieve leadership parity in an expedited timeline, as businesses and society we need to start empowering women at an earlier age, and stage, in their careers. That includes giving them the freedom to get the training they need, empowering them with the self-confidence to ask for that raise and draw from their life experiences to broaden the company's strategies, and also creating an atmosphere that nurtures family life with flexibility and supporting benefits. Bloomberg will pull from the over 100 companies in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index already leading on this issue to gain insights as to how to empower women at every level and lean in even further.



6:00 pm

Presentation Unconscious Bias

We all have unconscious bias, but what is it exactly? Bloomberg presents an interactive diversity exercise to help you become more aware of your own unconscious bias, recognize how it can adversely impact hiring and recruiting efforts and we'll discuss actionable strategies you can implement within your organization.
