In the aftermath of the #metoo movement, it is more important than ever to explore communication issues between the genders in the workplace.

Join us for this timely discussion as we delve into how to solve gender gap issues and achieve parity at work by focusing on the questions and solutions discussed in the best-selling book:  That’s What She Said:  What Men Need to Know (And Women Need to Tell Them) About Working Together, by Joanne Lipman. 

What can the Enron scandal teach us about the way men and women communicate professionally? How does brain circuitry help explain men’s fear of women’s emotions at work? Why did Kimberly Clark blindly have an all-male team of executives in charge of their Kotex tampon line? In That’s What She Said, veteran media executive Joanne Lipman raises these intriguing questions and more to find workable solutions that individual managers, organizations, and policy makers can employ to make work more equitable and rewarding for all professionals.

This is an interactive session and will feature relevant studies and stories from the book and offer a roadmap on how to empower women, engage men, and harness the working power of both genders to strengthen the overall health and success of your organization.
