The Women in Leadership Distinguished Speakers Series (DSS) are professional development events hosted online and in various locations nationwide. Each DSS takes a deep dive into a specific issue area, industry and/or competency related to women’s leadership.

 

Our topic for the September DSS - Women’s Leadership in Policy and Government - will be hosted in partnership with the Schar School of Policy and Government’s Gender and Policy (GAP) Center at George Mason University.

 

Our theme - Unraveling Unconscious Bias in the Workplace and Public Sphere - Definition, Identification, Implications and Antidotes - will explore how unconscious bias manifests and its implications for women's representation in the public sphere.  Leaders from various sectors will discuss their experience and expertise in identifying unconscious bias, and devising and implementing policy solutions to mitigate it in the interest of creating more inclusive and equitable workplaces and democratic institutions.  Intersectional considerations including race, gender, age, sexual orientation and ability, will be featured in the discussion.

  

ABOUT THE DSS

The Distinguished Speakers Series (DSS) was launched as a collective vision between AcademyWomen, the International Women’s Think Tank and the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.  In partnership with premier institutions of higher learning and organizations committed to diversity and inclusion, the DSS brings together our partners’ mutual commitments to promote women’s leadership in a diverse world, research, critical thinking and innovative problem-solving regarding issues related to women and girls. Distinguished women leaders, and our supporters, from around the world are expected to attend.
