Uncertainty, Compassion, and Why We Need More Women Leaders
March 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
Uncertainty flares around us – from the global turmoil of war, recession, and climate change to the local worries of family or friends losing jobs and inflation persisting. Leaders often find themselves at the center of the swirl, expected to have the answers and to assuage anxieties. How does compassion come into play here, in particular the qualities of courage and transparency? And why is it paramount to retain and promote more women leaders in this moment?
Join us for a very special Leadership Reimagined event with Avanade CEO, Pamela Maynard, on Friday, March 10, at 11:00am ET/4:00pm GMT, in conversation with Jacqueline Carter, Potential Project Senior Partner, and bestselling author of Compassionate Leadership: How to Do Hard Things in a Human Way. The event will be moderated by Julie Devoll from the Harvard Business Review.
Recently, Avanade landed in the number 3 spot on America’s Most Loved Workplaces list. This is particularly meaningful at a time when so many of us are reevaluating our jobs and if we want to stay, leave, or quietly check out. Pamela will talk more about how Avanade puts respect, care, and appreciation for their 50,000 professionals at the center of its business model. Pamela will also share her unique perspective as one of very few black female CEOs in the technology industry.
Join us for a conversation you don’t want to miss.
