The Rise and Lead Summit gathers C-Suite executives and leaders to address gender leadership and inclusion issues
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Registration is open for the fourth annual Rise and Lead Summit, a live virtual event Sept. 22-24. The Rise and Lead Women will host the 2021 Rise and Lead Global Summit- Advancing diversity through inclusive leadership. The pandemic has exacerbated gender inequality and reversed female career advancement in many industries and sectors.
“Having more women at top leadership position is good for everyone,” says Ebere Akadiri, Rise and Lead Founder and CEO of Ataro Foods. “Women are redefining what it means to be a leader with the skills and perspectives they bring to the table.” Yet, only 29% of women make it to the executive level, says Akadiri. How can men and women partner as leaders to drive change? The fourth annual Rise and Lead Summit 2021 will connect leaders, corporate executives, and both men and women as partners to share ideas and insights to address gender diversity and inclusion issues and strategies to increase women’s representation in leadership.
In addition to providing a transformative educational and knowledge-sharing experience for business professionals, the Summit aims to equip women and their companies with the tools they need to succeed and drive change.
The three-day gathering will offer over 20 keynotes, panel discussions, masterclasses, group discussions, and peer and facilitated networking and mentoring circles. Each day will begin with a group networking session (on video or audio) followed by the main sessions. In 2020, 250+ leaders and change-makers from different backgrounds and nationalities joined the Summit – more are expected in 2021!
The Rise and Lead Summit speakers include C-Suite executives and established thought leaders from major global companies like Uber, Coca Cola, Kraft Heinz, Aon, UPS, Procter & Gamble, Salesforce, Mastercard, L’Oréal, Insight and many more.
Here are a few of the executive speakers you can expect:
