Inclusive Leadership: Building Diverse Teams for Competitive Advantage
According to McKinsey & Company, diversity is good for business. In their "Delivering through Diversity" report, "Companies in the top quartile for ethnic diversity at the executive level are 33% more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the bottom quartile". As you're starting to build your executive team, your Board of Directors or Advisory Board, it's easier to build and foster diverse teams for competitive advantage now than to do it retroactively. Learn how (and why) these executives from F1000 companies have helped build strong and diverse teams.

Women Who Lead: Valerie Freeman
Valerie Freeman, CEO, Imprimis Group is a tough S.O.B. She started her company in the 1980s, where the term "Women-owned" actually hindered rather than helped and the notion of a #MeToo movement was laughable... Through securing her first bank loan, where the officer wouldn't even acknowledge her, to now having 5+ companies under the parent company of Imprimis, Valerie knows a thing or two about being a female entrepreneur. Heck, Valerie knows a thing or two about being an entrepreneur with odds stacked against her! Come hear from this incredible CEO, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and all around badass. You're guaranteed to leave with something - be it inspiration, food for thought, or perhaps rage? You won't want to miss this fireside moderated by, equally badass, Danielle Abril, Managing Editor, D CEO magazine.
