Studies across the United States and the globe suggest a direct correlation between increased company profit and the number of women serving in the c-suite, as executive-level leaders and on boards. In today’s corporate America, organizations must address diversity and inclusion to develop women leaders in the workplace through a fundamental culture shift.
Join the GBC for a Breakfast Briefing on March 22, 2018 on the prevention of workplace harassment and the encouragement of gender diversity and its many benefits—to both your workplace culture and your bottom line.
The conversation will feature Jamie Fontaine-Gansell, an advocacy communications expert who will discuss leadership and corporate culture strategies that develop and nurture women leaders and increase organizational performance, and Michelle M. McGeogh, Of Counsel for Ballard Spahr LLP.
Fontaine-Gansell is a 20-year veteran of advocacy across disciplines, platforms and mediums, including political, issue, corporate, nonprofit and regulatory. She is also a student of women’s leadership development, gender bias and the evolution of corporate programs that prioritize diversity and build pathways to not only promote but grow women leaders in the workplace.
McGeogh will provide legal background and practical insights on how employers can implement effective workplace harassment policies that encourage and inspire a diverse professional working environment.
For more than 10 years, McGeogh has concentrated her legal practice on private sector employment law, regularly providing guidance and training to employers looking to implement effective workplace policies. She partners with clients to proactively identify issues and create legal solutions, specifically tailored to the client’s workforce and business needs. McGeogh regularly advises clients in matters involving discrimination, retaliation, wage and hour issues, reductions in force, restrictive covenants, the Family Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. She represents private sector employers in a variety of industries, from higher education to development to telecommunications to manufacturing.
