This two-day Discovery Event will tackle the challenges posed by biases, stereotypes and micro-inequities when it comes to mental health and access to financing. It will also address how leaders can step up by being visible allies and vocal advocates when it matters most.
This virtual event will be delivered by Alyson Meister, Professor of Leadership and Organizational Behavior, and Vanina Farber, Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, in collaboration with IMD’s Chief Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Officer Josefine van Zanten.
On the first day, Professor Alyson Meister will address the challenges posed by chronic illness and issues of wellbeing, exploring what advocacy and allyship is needed during today’s mental health crisis.
On the second day, Professor Vanina Farber will focus on gender equity and access to financing, as well as social justice investing. She will examine how data can support the road to equity and give specific examples of the type of allyship and advocacy that is helpful.
Both sessions will focus on tangible steps busy managers can adopt to foster advocacy and allyship, as well as ways to enhance their own inclusive leadership in different contexts.
