Research shows it: Gender diversity in management ranks is good for business, yet there is still a lack of female leadership in the world's top companies. Why hasn't there been a change in the gender diversity of Fortune 500 companies? When can we expect that change to happen?

According to research by Global Communications and Engagement Firm, Weber Shandwick, there is a big paradox that needs to be dealt with now: "While a solid 73% of global executives believe that gender equality at the C-level will be achieved by 2030, only 44% of C-level executives report that their company has specific goals in place for achieving such an outcome. In addition, C-level gender parity remains a low priority for senior executive teams, with 40% describing it as neither important nor unimportant and 10% as unimportant."

So what does the future look like for women in business, particularly for those who are striving to RISE to the C-suite? And how will gender diversity in the executive ranks increasingly impact company reputation and performance in the years ahead? Join Ellevate Network and Weber Shandwick for a conversation with innovative women leaders who are working toward gender equality in their companies and are transforming the business world to be a place where women thrive and realize their ambitions. Don't miss this opportunity to learn and engage in compelling conversation with other notable women in your community.

Tremendous event! Thanks to Weber Shandwick for hosting such interesting and illuminating discussion. And, for sharing such insightful data with us all. How sad is it that there are more men named John that are CEOs of Fortune 500 companies than there are female CEOs.

One of my favorite Ellevate events yet! The panel, moderator and research handouts from Weber Shandwick made this event one of a kind, with data to back it up.
