Head of Learning and Development
Perry Ellis International
The challenges are well known: businesses continue to face a huge gap for diverse senior-leadership positions. We see fewer women, and people of color, at each step along the path to the C-suite. The barriers are increasingly well-known too: a mix of cultural factors, ingrained mind-sets, and outdated behavior, as well as a lack of an effective framework to tackle the challenge.
This session will explore a grass-roots approach to broaden the access to development for diverse leadership. Join the Prudential and Perry Ellis Talent Development leaders as they share an innovative approaches to:
•Tapping into a broader range of women leaders than what is readily available in the linear talent pool
•Working with the community at large to explore unique opportunities for local diverse talent
•Moving the needle from mentoring to sponsoring, encouraging other leaders to take ownership of the development at different levels, such as directors, and managers.
