Despite overwhelming evidence that diversity is a key driver of competitive advantage, gender diversity in the workplace remains a challenge. The World’s GDP has the potential to increase by 30% with more women in the workforce. Women, who continue to be underrepresented at most levels in the workforce, are not progressing in their careers despite the past two decades of organizational efforts to achieve gender diversity and equality, according to the ground breaking global research from Mercer, When Women Thrive, Businesses Thrive. The research, in collaboration with EDGE Certified Foundation, which analyzed workforce data for more than 1.7 million employees in 28 countries, including more than 680,000 women, identifies what organizations can do to fully engage women in the workplace, ensure that diversity thrives, and achieve business success. Julio A. Portalatin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mercer, will share some of the research findings and valuable insights into the organizational practices that actually lead to greater gender diversity and those that may be holding women back.
