The Gender Revolution: What Every Business Leader Needs to Know!
Join Community Innovation Lab and LiisBeth on Wednesday, June 26th from 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM for an interactive session on what every business leader needs to know to advance equity in the workplace.
How much do you know about feminism? Feminism is a robust, pluralistic social movement that has continued to grow, deepen and evolve globally — even if the mainstream understanding of the movement has not. Given political winds and climate change, the feminist movement is arguably more relevant now than ever before. Business leaders interested in advancing equity, diversity and inclusion can no longer ignore feminism or it impacts on business practices.
In a safe, accepting environment, share your views, find out what feminist scholars today have to say about the world we live in, and how you can best help achieve one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: Gender Equality.
You will learn: - The core concepts of intersectionality, decolonization and gender identity - About the feminist landscape, including types of feminism, and contrasting Canadian, US, and Chinese feminism as examples - How men fit into the feminist equation - What feminism means for entrepreneurs and business leaders today - Ways to continue your learning beyond this session, including how to engage with the feminist community and economy in your area
