The U.S. 30% Club is delighted to be a supporting partner of the inaugural FT Women at the Top Summit USA, taking place in New York on November 12th.
The summit focuses on gender equality in business and follows the success of the European edition. Attendees will hear leaders share their stories of success and setbacks, learn from honest discussion about the obstacles stalling further progress, and take part in forward-looking, action-focused debate with the women and men driving change.
The world is run by those with the most money and power. They help shape cultural norms and the structure of how people live and work. Today, although societal pressure has brought hidden power inequalities to light and helped drive progress, an imbalance persists. The 30% Club believes that gender balance on boards and in senior management not only encourages better leadership and governance, but diversity further contributes to better all-round board performance, and ultimately increased corporate performance for both companies and their shareholders.
