CGI 2013 Day Two: Women Decision Makers

Hillary's big event today was to introduce this panel discussion.

Plenary Session

9:00 AM -

 10:00 AM

Women Decision-Makers in the Global Economy

Investing in women’s employment yields significant gains in the health and education of children, in the prosperity of businesses, and in the economy overall. Despite this, major barriers to entry still exist at all levels—whether women are trying to create small- and medium-sized businesses to compete in the global marketplace, progress as employees in bigger companies, or access the highest level positions in business and finance.
In this session, key leaders from across sectors will share HOW members can:
• support women in overcoming the barriers that limit their access to decision-making positions, whether it is as small business owners or as board members
• discuss whether imposing quotas yields positive results for women, for companies’ profitability, and the economy overall
