Breakout Session One
Do No Harm: Solutions to Address Health Barriers and Equitable Entry Disparities for Women

Gender disparities in access to preventive and emergent healthcare have never been more acute, especially among black and brown women and those with language barriers.


At this session, our panelists will discuss solutions to inequitable treatment in prenatal and postpartum care, including maternal mortality, cardiovascular disease, as well as vaccinations and treatment for COVID-19.


Attendees will end this session empowered with knowledge and tools to increase access to quality care for themselves and their communities.

Breakout Session Two
Leadership for a New Era: Board Diversity, Company Performance & Governance

Recently, Nasdaq took a bold move proposing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to adopt listing rules that require board diversity.  During this dynamic panel discussion, we will discuss actionable ideas through the lens of key stakeholders to address social governance and what accountability looks like in a new era.  We will debate:

  • How asset managers are evaluating the connection between social governance and a company's performance, including metrics to hold companies accountable;

  • What actions board directors and CEOs are taking to increase diversity in the boardroom and executive suite; and,

  • How leaders can develop a social governance strategy aligned with business results.
