Panel Discussion: On Ramps / Off Ramps: Keeping Talented Women Engaged

There has been intense debate over the “opt-out revolution” for highly-qualified women professionals as disturb trends indicate they are dropping out of their careers. Are the complex demands of work and modern family life the problem? Or is it gender-based stereotyping? This session will provide an update on unique research as to why industry women head for the off-ramp and offer insights on how good employers are building a new narrative to keep women on the road to success.
