Executive Educational Forum
Gender is a Strategic Business Concern, Not a Women’s Issue

Naridus Executive Educational Forums were developed for clients who want to integrate the full range of women’s talents into and throughout their organizations. The Forums steer executive participants to review and recognize how common perspectives, typical assumptions, and everyday practices concerning women and men can have an unintended stifling affect on a broad range of concerns such as recruiting and retention; market development and client acquisition; and creativity, innovation, teamwork and collaboration.

Furthermore, participants are presented the powerful business case for women that makes clear that gender is an absolute strategic business concern, not a women’s issue. Practical tips are presented on how recognizing different styles between men and women can foster immediate, positive change in the workplace. Participants will be asked to make a commitment to action. Participants leave the Forum with a clear message: to maintain the status quo in terms of gender is to limit success, growth, and opportunity.

Also learn about the three interconnected components of a Work Identity: Technical Expertise (what the individual contributes to generating products/services), Organizational Role (the part the individual plays in her or his organization’s story), and Interpersonal Style (how the individual relates with others).  Participants leave the presentation with an evaluation of their present Work Identity, and a clear direction for skill development & career planning.
