I chatted with Shelley Zalis (@shelleyzalis), an internationally renowned thought leader for advancing equality in the workplace and the CEO of The Female Quotient (@femalequotient), champion of equality, and all-around chief troublemaker. We discussed how Shelley is advancing gender equality across a variety of industries and career levels!
She recently received the @globalmindedorg 2020 Inclusive Leader Award for Entrepreneurship. We discuss advancing equality for women around the world. At the current rate of progress, the World Economic Forum projects it will take 257 years to close the global gender gap — and that gap is only widening due to the effects of the pandemic. We have to take proactive, bold action if we are going to accelerate change. Collaboration is key; Shelley always says that a person alone has power, but together, we have impact. The purpose driving the Female Quotient is in advancing equality in the workplace through the power of collaboration. Bringing visibility to women & activate change.
