CEO Dialogue: Gender Diversity and Women Empowerment in the Workplace
Tuesday, 17 August 2021 10:00 to 11:30
Imperial in partnership with the National Business Initiative (NBI), under the NBI’s Social Transformation: Bold and Transformative Leadership Pathway are hosting a CEO Thought Leadership Dialogue as we unpack Gender Diversity and Women Empowerment in the Workplace.
The NBI’s CEO Thought Leadership Dialogue Series is an important virtual engagement for business leaders. It is an opportunity to explore both challenges and opportunities, lessons and best practice vital to our economic recovery, as well as co-created approaches and interventions that drive transformation within workplaces and strengthen the role of business in society.
In this dialogue with Imperial CEO, Mohammed Akoojee and Executive Vice President: Corporate Affairs and Investor Relations, Esha Mansingh, we will explore the importance of gender diversity and the advancement of women in the workplace and why it is both necessary and pivotal for organisations to grow, succeed and be sustainable in challenging economic circumstances.
The discussion aims to understand the importance of gender equity being driven from the top, in order to ensure commitment and create an enabling environment for change. We also examine the role of mentorship in supporting growth and empowerment. We aim to understand first-hand the experience of Esha Mansingh being a young woman in leadership and what the guidance of having a visionary leader meant in spearheading her career and success. By exploring the impact thereof, we can understand how it has shaped women’s empowerment within Imperial and what she has been able to achieve as a result.
This thought leadership discussion will also enable conversation around best practice and the commitment to gender equality.
Call to Action:
We call on CEOs to take action and prioritise transformation and equity as a key focal area in driving business commitment to advance transformation as a normative culture in the workplace. This commitment should be driven by a realisation that addressing gender equity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal imperative.
