It's no secret there's a shockingly low number of women who make it to the C-suite in Corporate America.

Gender equality is an honorable pursuit, but not if the efforts only benefit white women. Successful companies recognize the intersectionality of gender, and they activate programs that lift women of all colors, cultures, choices and identities. This session will spotlight some of the most inclusive practices and programs orchestrated by leading companies – many of them surfaced through #Inclusive100* – that effectively lift all women. Recognizing that Inclusion is a shared pursuit across marketing, media and tech, the panelists want to arm you with actionable ideas to create more inclusivity and diversity in your work, workforce and workplace.
*#Inclusive100 is an initiative launched by She Runs It and Diversity Best Practices; for more information visit sherunsit.org or diversitybestpractices.com/dbp-inclusion-index

When you add it up, women of color will make a million dollars less than their male counterparts over the course of their careers. And at its current pace, the pay gap in the U.S. is not projected to close for over 100 years. This is a call-to-action for us all.
