The Women Executives Forum explores the challenges and opportunities facing women leaders, those executives in and aspiring to the c-suite, and how men and women can take action to support gender equality.  The series of workshops feature notable and thoughtful speakers from the association, non-profit, and public sectors. Each edition of the Women Executives Forum features a thought-provoking keynote presentation followed by facilitated table discussions.

As technology plays an ever-increasing role in our daily lives, we risk losing some of the humanity essential to a successful workforce. Algorithms may help screen potential job applicants, but can they accurately capture the person behind the key words on a resume? Does our always-on world allow employees to separate their personal lives from their professional persona? Can technology help to foster the interpersonal connective tissue needed for a successful team?

These questions and more are important to consider as technological advances continue to transform our workplaces and bring future efficiencies to employers. What can women leaders do to help ensure that human dignity and community are protected along the way? Register now to learn:

  • Strategies to protect employee dignity and help build community
  • How to spot implicit bias in automated systems

Through education, collaboration, and networking, the Women Executives Forum provides a framework and tools to support women leaders in the association community, facilitating the leadership pipeline and helping associations transform their organizations and the communities they serve.
