Creating the Next Wave of Female Leaders: Best Practices for Building a Healthy, Diverse Business

Presenters at this session will discuss why having more female leaders isn’t just about gender equality but is good for business! In fact, privately held technology companies led by women are more capital-efficient, achieving a 35 percent higher ROI. Female-led venture-backed companies achieve 12 percent higher revenue than startups run by men, according to the Kauffman Foundation, and female-founded companies in First Round Capital’s portfolio outperformed male-founded companies by 63 percent.

Meanwhile, Advisory Board notes that of those chosen as the most influential people in health care, only 21 percent are women. Presenters will discuss steps healthcare systems can take to propel more women to the C-suite. These include building a mentoring program that pairs senior leaders with high-potential female employees; being deliberate about giving women P&L responsibility; building out female representation on the board; making your company an attractive place for female candidates by refreshing your messaging, benefits, and special events; and much more.
