The Human Resources Association of Treasure Valley is pleased to present the October executive Luncheon program, “Women Are THE Competitive Advantage" presented by Lawler Kang, Founder/CEO League of Allies. Data is revealing gender synergy may be the most powerful and differentiating factor to corporate performance, and the institutional investment community is taking serious note. Getting both intellectual and emotional C-suite buy-in, commitment, and budget, for gender programs is critical to their perceptions by employees, and their results: are you realizing profitable impacts or merely Pinkwashing?

This session will share strategies and tactics, and supporting science and data, as to how to “make the case” to executives as to the material impact of female parity, balance, and inclusion.

- A scientific and curated data-driven case as to the power of the gender card with both operating company and capital markets perspectives

- How to deal with male objections to gender equity

- Strategy and tactics as to how to best facilitate the conversation with primarily male executives to gain both intellectual and emotional commitment, and investment
