    The Women Executives Forum explores the challenges and opportunities facing women leaders—executives in and aspiring to the C-suite—and how men and women can take action to support gender equality. The series of workshops features notable speakers from the association, nonprofit, and public sectors. Each edition of the Women Executives Forum features a thought-provoking keynote presentation followed by facilitated table discussions.

    While many organizations have flexibility policies on the books, providing flexible work options without stigma remains a challenge. A successful flex initiative requires strong buy-in, thoughtful implementation, and regular monitoring, and it needs to be adaptable, evolving with the organization as employees’ needs change.

    Whether your organization needs to create a flexibility program from scratch, expand its existing program, or pinpoint issues within the current program, this session will draw on the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance's Flex Success Framework, a five-step proprietary process for implementing and evolving effective flexible work programs to achieve your organization’s flex objectives. Participants will also explore the intersection of gender diversity and flexibility to create an inclusive culture that attracts and retains top talent.
