From The CEO's Perspective: Women & Leadership

May 25, 2017

SEATTLE, WA, USA - The evidence is clear, inclusive leaders and inclusive organizations outperform those that are not. According to a Catalyst report, firms with more women on their boards outperform their rivals with a 42% higher return on sales, 66% higher return on invested capital, and 53% higher return on equity.

Leaders send a powerful message when they demonstrate a commitment to inclusion. Yet we know women remain underrepresented in all ranks of management, especially in the C-suite.

Join us for a conversation with three of Seattle’s most influential CEOs to hear how inclusion has translated to impact. Hear how aspiring female leaders influence the power of male counter-parts to be more effective champions for increasing the number of women in leadership roles, the C-suite and on corporate boards.

Panelists Include:
• Gary Kaplan, CEO, Virginia Mason Medical Center
• Gov. Christine Gregoire, CEO, Challenge Seattle
• Ed Thomas, Managing Partner, Deloitte
