“Changing the Status Quo: Gender Equality in Corporate Leadership”. 
Gender balance in corporate boards and top management is a much discussed subject with organizations putting forth multiple initiatives – but what has the actual impact been? And how do we break the impasse?

Featuring a Key Note by Vinika D. Rao, Executive Director, INSEAD EMI, followed by a panel discussion with academics and corporate leaders, this event will provide an interactive opportunity  to discuss recommendations on what the next evolution of practices should be for gender parity in leadership.
