Welcome to the Business Case Conference blog!

This Friday and Saturday October 15-16, 2010, the Women and Public Policy Program is hosting “Closing the Gender Gap: The Business Case for Organizations, Politics and Society” in collaboration with the Council of Women World Leaders and our knowledge partner, the World Economic Forum.

Beginning with a macro-perspective on development, we will focus on the relationship between a country’s gender gap and its economic performance. This will be followed by a discussion of the impact of gender diversity on political outcomes and include the reflections of women leaders who have served in political office.

After examining gender gaps at the societal and political levels, we will address individual, team and organizational perspectives, analyzing how a person’s gender affects financial decision making, the relevance of diversity in teams and the relationship between the gender balance in corporations (management and boards) and company performance.

The two day conference will address:
  • the relationship between a country’s gender gap and its economic performance
  • the impact of gender diversity on political outcomes
  • how a person’s gender affects financial decision making
  • the relevance of diversity in teams 
  • the relationship between the gender balance in corporations (management and boards) and company performance

 We'll be blogging throughout the conference, so stay tuned for updates!
