Women Matter with Tania Holt (Partner, McKinsey & Co)
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We all know that women matter (duhhhh) but many people (we can them haters or swag deflators) disagree. As a young #MotherlandMogul, it's important to arm yourself with the facts and the figures so you can shut down all those Swag Deflators. Tania Holt, a partner at global consulting firm McKinsey & Co, is here to give you all the knowledge you need to do just that. She was one of the lead partners on an epic research project aptly titled "Women Matter." Tania's work proved that companies with a greater share of women on their boards of directors and executive committees tend to perform better financially whilst developing a series of recommendations to help companies become more diverse. If you ever wanted to convince your organization to promote and hire more women then you need to hear what Tania's got to say.
