ARLINGTON, March 18 –Nathan is a leader in advancing gender equity and inclusion in partnership with governments and corporations. On March 19, Nathan’s CEO Sue Chodakewitz will be presenting opening remarks at an event hosted by Leadership Greater Washington and Capital One, on supporting gender equity and women’s leadership in the workplace.

The event is part of a six-part workshop series developed by Nathan for Leadership Greater Washington and Capital One to create an empowering workplace for women. Participants include senior executives and corporate and civic leaders from the greater Washington, D.C. area.

Increasing awareness of the lost opportunities associated with gender inequality in the workplace has driven more organizations and leaders to reexamine policies and culture to better attract, retain and advance women. Each workshop developed by Nathan as part of this series addresses a different topic on how leaders can create a more inclusive and enabling work environment. As a result of the series, leaders will have a comprehensive understanding of the barriers preventing gender equity, practical tools and solutions to address constraints to women’s leadership, and a renewed capacity to effect change in their organizations.

Discussions have focused on unconscious bias, the gender wage gap and hiring practices, the business case for women’s leadership, corporate culture, parental leave issues, and tools and strategies for supporting women in the workplace. Upcoming discussions will focus on inclusive leadership, engaging men as allies, and addressing workplace sexual harassment and gender mainstreaming.

Speakers in the series have included senior executives from Fortune 500 companies across the United States and thought leaders from the gender equity and leadership space.

As part of its growing gender practice, Nathan has designed and developed 15 regional tools, platforms, reports, and frameworks for advancing women’s advancement in the workforce, and has focused particularly on economic issues in historically male-dominated sectors like energy, transportation, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Nathan has also conducted gender assessments in Africa, South America, Asia, and Europe. For more information, please visit: https://www.nathaninc.com/womens-economic-empowerment/
