Women make up almost half of the U.S. labor force, and the Millennial generation is the largest age cohort in the workforce. Yet women and Millennials often struggle to conform and thrive in traditional business structures that were not created by or for them. How can women be better leaders for other women and for future generations?
Duluth native Tricia Correia will lead us from noon-1:30 p.m. June 29 in an interactive discussion of key findings from her report. “Women, Millennials and the Future Workplace,” a year-long research initiative that examines key themes for how leaders can empower employees, including:
• How to be a collaborative and inclusive leader,
• The role of networks and mentors in upward mobility and professional success
• How to create a culture that values flexibility and promotes work-life integration.
Correia served as the inaugural Bank of America Fellow on Women & the Economy at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace & Security, where she led a groundbreaking study on women and Millennials in the United States professional labor force that was featured last year in The Huffington Post. This research took her all across the country, from Silicon Valley to Wall Street, where she met with 60 men and women at 30 companies to discuss their experiences and perspectives on women and Millennials in business. Now, as Director of Business & Talent Development at Delve in Washington, D.C., Tricia leads the company’s talent initiatives and works to apply many of these learnings.
