General Session

Trinity Ballroom

Pivot to the future: making gender equity our reality. There are certain pivotal moments when we take stock, realize what could — and should — be and then draw a line in the sand that says we will only go farther and higher from here. With insight, energy and commitment, the food industry's most influential leaders have decided collectively that this is one of those moments. Equipped for the first time with detailed, industry-specific data about the real state of women's progress in the workplace, we are charting a new path forward where there is no room for the status quo. In this thought provoking and interactive session, you will hear just-released data about the obstacles and opportunities women face in their careers and our industry's plans to become an exemplar for gender equity and women's advancement. Meet the data gurus who connect gender equity to corporate financial performance and the revolutionary industry leaders who will be the first to open new pathways to progress. This is our future: no excuses.
