In celebration of International Women’s Day, PwC Bermuda and the Women’s Legal Network are hosting a Panel Discussion entitled, The Diversity Journey: Taking Action, Creating Impact, Achieving Results on Wednesday, March 8th.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year the campaign is themed Be Bold for Change. For more information, visit www.InternationalWomensDay.com.
The panel celebrating International Women’s Day has been developed in a partnership between Talia Lucas, the strategic leader of PwC Bermuda’s gender diversity initiative and the Women’s Legal Network which was co-founded by lawyers Lovette Tannock and Kimberley D. Caines.
The panel takes place on at 5.30pm at O’Hara House on Bermudiana Road. Panellists include Catherine Bromilow, representing PwC’s Governance Insights Center, joined by local thought leaders; Elizabeth Cava, The Hon. Chief Justice Dr. Ian RC Kawaley, Robin Mayor and Patrick Tannock.
PwC research found, in a survey of 1,322 CEOs from 77 countries, when asking if their organizations have reaped benefits from strategies to promote diversity and inclusion – 90% agreed it attracts talent, 85% agreed it enhances business performance, and 83% agreed it strengthened their brand and reputation. Yet this is still not reflected in global leadership.
To learn more, they invite you to join them this International Women’s Day, to see how we can put awareness into action and make tangible impacts towards a better working world – a more inclusive, gender equal world. This event is an opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and successes.
Please note there is limited availability.
