In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, Quinnie examined the question of whether gender equality leads to better business outcomes from the perspective of an international lawyer turned social entrepreneur. In this webinar, she presented data on the gender leadership and wage gaps across the globe and in the United States. She also offered some tools and case studies for addressing gender inequities in your workplace, and how that can translate to economic growth.
