The Business Case for Gender Diversity

Wed, Oct 29 2014 - 12:00pm

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

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.
