5:45 PM Discussing Women in Leadership: Why Having a Diverse Succession Plan Benefits your Organization

Research illustrates that having women in leadership correlates with better overall business performance (significant increases in ROI, return on sales and invested capital). Women bring different experiences, perspectives and competencies to leadership roles. Providing targeted leadership programs for women is not just a diversity initiative -- it is a business imperative. In this discussion, DeRetta Cole Rhodes, SVP of HR, Atlanta Braves, will walk us through the challenges she has faced in her various leadership roles.
