The Women in Work Summit, Founded by Intuitive Events US, will take place at the Edison Rooftop on November 9th, 2023. It will bring together business leaders, HR practitioners and clinical experts from across all industry sectors who will share their expertise and experience around womens health and its impact on workforce participation – and what businesses can do to support women at all critical life and health stages.
55% of employees struggling with fertility say theyre not getting the support they need from their employers (Maven Clinic). 17 percent of women have quit a job or considered quitting due to menopause symptoms (Biote Women in the Workplace Survey, 2022) and failure to retain talent costs US businesses one trillion dollars a year according to a Gallup report.
Studies by McKinsey & Company find that companies with more diverse workforces perform better financially, with a direct correlation identified between a diverse workforce and higher profits. McKinsey has found that companies with more than 30% female executives tended to outperform companies with 10% to 30% female leaders, and those companies outperformed companies with fewer or no women executives. (McKinsey, 2022)
Speakers at the event include C-Suite executives, leaders, HR practitioners, and high profile personalities including Naomi Watts, Actor and Founder of Stripes; Mariella Frostrup, Journalist and Co-Founder of Menopause Mandate, Miriam Warren, Chief Diversity Officer, Yelp; Lucy Perez, Senior Partner, McKinsey, and Company; Jennifer Remling, Chief People Officer, WPP; Stephanie Kramer, CHRO, LOreal; Keith Lieberthal, Regional Head (Americas), Hakluyt; Carly Pierpoint, Managing Director, JP Morgan; and Ramin Beheshti, President & Co-Founder, The News Movement.
Disparities in health outcomes between different genders are more than just a statistical anomaly; they reflect a broader societal issue where women often receive suboptimal healthcare compared to men. This spans from reproductive health concerns to the management of life transitions such as pregnancy and menopause. The interplay between womens health and their presence in the labor market cannot be overstated. Its incumbent upon employers to step up and integrate comprehensive health strategies into the workplace. Absent strong policies and a culture that upholds these values, the repercussions are clear: a loss of valuable talent and a negative impact on the organizations financial health.
I am so pleased to acknowledge the commitment of our collaborators at this Summit. Their alignment and dedication to transforming the workplace into an inclusive environment for all genders is commendable. They are at the forefront, providing innovative solutions to support employees during pivotal moments in their lives. And I am grateful to them for taking the time to share their learnings and best practices, said Melissa Ashley, Co-Founder.
