Uniting our Power 
Watch the 2019 Recap Video!

We are unique individuals with our own experiences, skills and journeys. And while ultimately it comes down to each of us identifying and pursuing what we need at work and at home to be fulfilled, it is in the coming together that we are able to expand our thinking, our perspective and ultimately our impact.


IWL has always been a place where leaders from different companies, backgrounds, races, genders and perspectives come together to focus on our individual development, but also on our shared challenges and opportunities in pursuit of better, more sustainable solutions. This year’s IWL conference is focused on how we can unite the power of the many who show up, speak up and stand tall to advance the inclusion conversation in our companies, our homes and in our communities. Please join us in Uniting Our Power.

Gender Bias in the Workplace: An Interactive Session 
Show More

Have you ever believed that you weren’t being evaluated with the same measuring stick as your peers? Why does that happen? What is the impact? What can be done about it?


These are the questions we will explore during the Gender Bias in the Workplace session. There are common gender biases that creep into our psyches, our homes and our places of work every day that impact the expectations we have of each other and ourselves. These biases include our beliefs around performance, likability and family obligations. We will facilitate a conversation through the sharing of personal stories from male and female leaders in our community. Leaders who have experienced these biases directly and have insights to share on the importance of unearthing and addressing these biases in order to get the best out of ourselves, our teams and our companies.


Join us for this interactive session that will spark this important conversation with your colleagues.
