Workshop - Gender Intelligence: The Competitive Advantage

In the past, we’ve operated on the belief that balanced gender representation should be achieved in business, government and education. To achieve that goal, it requires viewing both genders as identical on the inside. However, we’ve found that equalizing the numbers doesn’t necessarily result in gender balance. Similarly, treating everyone the same would appear to help eradicate bias but doesn’t result in gender equality. Women have different, yet complementary, strengths to men. Scientists have clearly demonstrated our very striking structural and chemical differences in the brain. When you understand the differences in how women’s and men’s brains work, you have the key to productive cross-gender relationships.

Please join Barbara Annis, founding partner of Gender Intelligence Group, in exploring gender intelligence and how it can improve decision-making and innovation, minimize risk, produce superior financial results and ultimately allow us all to engage more effectively.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the value and practice of inclusive leadership through gender & cultural intelligence.
  • Evaluate the differences in how women’s and men’s brains work to build a more productive and successful workplace.
  • Explore how gender intelligence can improve leadership skills and decision-making and increase business results.
