Visier Launches ‘Women in Leadership Speaker Series’ Across Multiple Cities to Foster a Community for Women Leaders of Tomorrow

Vancouver, BC and San Jose, CA |

Featuring inspirational career stories shared by top women executives, the Visier Women in Leadership Speaker Series will provide  powerful career advice including strategies to address the “Manager Divide”

To inspire women leaders of tomorrow, Visier, the recognized leader in people analytics and planning, is launching a multi-city Women in Leadership Speaker Series, kicking off with events in Charlotte, Toronto, and Houston. The luncheon events will feature women executive leaders who will share inspirational career stories as well as lessons learned on their path to success. A leading voice on the issue of gender equity, Visier is launching this speaker series to jump-start industry-level conversations and share smart strategies to address the continuing inequalities in pay and management roles uncovered in the Visier Insights: Gender Equity report. A key report finding – the Manager Divide – clearly linked an underrepresentation of women in manager positions at key points in their careers to a widening of the gender wage gap. The report also concluded that eliminating the Manager Divide would cut the gender wage gap by nearly one third.   "This speaker series is the next step in our mission to build community around women in leadership and address the issues surrounding gender pay equity and the manager divide that we uncovered in our ground-breaking Visier Insights Gender Equity report," said Josie Sutcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, Visier. "By sharing stories of exceptional female leaders, we hope to inspire other women leaders to take their careers to the next level."   Initial dates and locations for Visier’s Women in Leadership Speaker Series lunches are as follows: Charlotte, NC - October 4th, 2018 Speakers:
