More than 3.5 million women were forced out of the workforce during the pandemic, up-ending company gender diversity plans. And organizations continue to struggle with keeping talent on board, facing this time of unprecedented turnover known as the “Great Resignation.”
How can your organization engage women and drive their career growth to turn the “Great Resignation” into the “Great Retention?” Join Addie Swartz, CEO of reacHIRE, as she moderates a Massachusetts High Technology Council Women in Leadership (WIL) fireside chat featuring Sharra Owens-Schwartz, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Senior Director at Rocket Software, and Heather Bender, VP of Talent at iRobot, who will share stories of how they supported and engaged women throughout the pandemic—and beyond. Discover actionable steps your business can take to overcome key challenges and better support women on their career journeys so they thrive and stay, including:
- Building communities and peer networks
- Offering mentoring and coaching to build strong female leaders
- Providing expert-led training for women to grow their skills
- Fostering a sense of belonging
The event, co-hosted by the Mass. High Tech Council, reacHIRE, 2021 WIL Annual Sponsor PTC, and Knowledge Partner McKinsey & Company, will take place virtually on Thursday, October 7 from 12:00pm-1:00pm ET.
