The Business Case for Gender Diversity

Image - The Business Case for Gender Diversity
Wed, Oct 29 2014 - 12:00pm

Joe Keefe, CEO, Pax World Funds, Pax Ellevate Management, LLC

Research suggests that when women are at the table or in leadership positions, companies perform better. Where gender diversity reaches a critical mass of three or more women on a board, governance improves and so does financial performance. Yet, despite the powerful business case for women, gender inequality stubbornly persists. Joe Keefe will be discussing the business-side of gender diversity in the workplace. Keefe has written and spoken widely on the subject of women’s empowerment.
