April 2018 Recap
What does it really mean to “hire the best candidate for the job”? how to build a power-house organization with intentional diversity recruiting.
Thank you to our sponsors, our host, and most importantly everyone who participated in and attended our April event. We hope you walked away with actionable steps for bringing greater diversity and inclusion to your organization. If you weren't able to make it, don't worry, you can check out the full recap here and pictures from the evening below!
Join us for our next event this October, where we'll discuss Allies: Why they matter and how they can best support diversity and inclusion for all!
Changing the Conversation is an event series co-founded by Cynnie King, Rachel Fagnant-Fassler and Maria Simon, and sponsored by CFW Careers in collaboration with our team of committed volunteers and advocates.
Having been committed to advancing women in business since our founding 43 years ago, we find it all the more critically important today to take on continued inequality in pay and representation in the workforce. Changing the Conversation 2017 will be devoted to Advancing Women in Business through programming that moves from identifying the issues, which have been so well documented, to What can we do about it? both in terms of our own careers and corporate and government policy-making. Our belief is that by advancing women toward corporate leadership, we can help all women across the socioeconomic spectrum.
The mission of Changing the Conversation is to positively impact gender equality within the business sector, seeking equal representation of women in the workforce and in leadership.
This Mission Is Fueled By
- An interactive event series connecting women executives to peers to create a network committed to advancing female leadership
- Advocacy in the private and public sectors for policies that support the prominence and permanence of women in the workforce
- Professional guidance and career development for women in business, including job placement, transition coaching, and mentoring
Praise for Changing The Conversation
CFW Careers' events and other initiatives for women are inspired by the ideals of our founder, David King, who has been an ardent champion for women in sales leadership for over 40 years. We strive to give voice to women in business, advance their careers, and contribute to the conversation about gender equality in the workplace.
