Diversity pays! Why Investors seek Women in Top Leadership

Janet CrawfordWhat do the Technology and Entertainment industries have in common? They both exhibit a stunning underrepresentation of women. Meanwhile, research shows a strong correlation between the number of women in top leadership positions and higher rates of innovative and overall business performance! However, leaders don’t always know how to change the culture to gain the benefits of a more inclusive culture. This is why they call Janet Crawford, our February speaker.

Janet Crawford has invested many years in developing an understanding of the nature of systems, first in environmental science, then business systems, and most recently in evolutionary biology and neuroscience. She is a recognized author, successful consultant, and sought after speaker, both domestically and internationally.

She holds a bachelors degree in Environmental Science from U.C. Berkeley, a Masters in Latin American Studies from Stanford University, and is former faculty at the JFK University Graduate School of Psychology and the Kauffman Foundation Center for Venture Education.

So, if you are like Disney, Pixar, Flextronics, Virgin America, Intel, and many other companies who have sought to gain competitive advantage by unlocking hidden potential in their work cultures by listening to Janet Crawford, join us for our upcoming CEO Club Breakfast. Janet shared some insight into her work at our January meeting, and was unanimously recruited to be our featured speaker in February!
