This past Thursday, we attended the SACC-DC Women’s Leadership Forum at the Swedish Embassy. The discussion shared various practices to level the playing field for women and men in the corporate world, as well as different approaches used in Sweden and the U.S. The conversation also touched on the #metoo movement, and ways to educate the next generation on issues of gender inequality. We enjoyed hearing remarks from Sweden’s first female Ambassador to the U.S. - Karin Olofsdotter, as well as VP of Risk Management at @livetpaskanska - Zoe Markwick, Director of Women’s Global Leadership Initiative - Gwen Young, and moderator, Victoria Roberts - VP and General Manager of Bloomberg BNA. We hope that more conversations like this can occur, so that future women business leaders will receive the pay, treatment and respect they deserve.
