Launching Gender Balance Initiatives Successfully.

How do you ensure your initiatives result in effective change and tangible benefits for the organization & staff?

BRUSSELS (Boitsfort)
8:30-10:30 A.M.

Join us for an interactive and stimulating 2-hour business event designed for Women and Men Board Members, C-Suite Executives and HR Directors.

Together we will explore where you are on your journey and consider the next steps towards your goals and those of your organization, achieving superior value and performance through senior management gender balance.

Why attend this Business Breakfast?

How do you ensure your initiatives result in effective change and tangible benefits for the organization & staff?

We know from the 2018 findings in a McKinsey report that companies in the top-quartile for gender diversity on their executive teams were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to have superior value creation.

However, for the majority of organizations, achieving a more balanced and diverse leadership profile is proving to be a slow, incremental process, despite the many efforts being made through training and creative initiatives. In some cases, the glass ceiling remains unbroken.

MCE is increasingly being asked “how can we fast-track the gender balance change processes and achieve an exponential increase in the number of talented women acquiring leadership roles? How can we learn from the top quartile organizations?”

We have the answers! Please join us at this two-hour event where we will share with you the know-how that we and our parent company, AMA, have amassed through our high level of interaction with organizations globally. We know why some initiatives are more successful than others, with reasons ranging from unclear objectives and targets to a lack of engagement with the organization’s multipliers of change.

In this Business Breakfast you will have the opportunity to view successful initiatives and programmes used in the private and public sectors and see the pitfalls and common mistakes, which can lead to frustration and wasted efforts. We also provide you with the space to network and share what works.
