Change With Impact
In today’s business world, is it even necessary to talk about gender equity and diversity anymore? Surprisingly, yes. We certainly have “come a long way, baby”! But successful business people on both sides of the spectrum would be surprised to discover that major issues still remain in today’s corporate world. At Booz Allen Hamilton, worldwide originator and leader of the management consulting industry, a groundbreaking set of initiatives have been developed to meet these challenges. Starting with the Women’s Agenda which pinpoints several powerful misconceptions that hinder successful women in their workplace, the initiative has now successfully expanded into six additional diversity and equality agendas: African-American, Hispanic, Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender/LGBT, Disability, Asian American and Military. Listen as two successful women from Booz Allen Hamilton explain how women are being given the tools to succeed and advance in even the most formidable of corporate challenges.
