In the frame of its Brussels-based sessions, WIL Europe is organising on the 29th of November 2018 a Breakfast Debate at the European Parliament in Brussels on the topic of:
Gender Diversity in the Workplace: Time to Walk the Talk
Gender diversity and inclusion is one of the most talked about issues at the moment, and for a good reason, as it makes both moral and business sense.
However, despite the clear research, decades of advocacy and pervasive headlines, many organizations are still struggling to ensure that women are really getting the same opportunities. With such strong rewards for gender diversity, it is time for workplaces to walk the talk and push for faster change.
The objective of this event is therefore to discuss and exchange best practices and strategies for building a conducive work environment, retaining and attracting women and supporting them to climb up the corporate ladder.
The debate will take place at the European Parliament, where we will be hosted by MEP and fellow Board Member Pervenche Berès.
