COLLABORATE. INSPIRE. LEAD        

March 11, 2017           

INTRODUCTION

This year, the 21st annual Berkeley-Haas Women in Leadership conference will focus on collaboration between men and women so that we can empower each other, inspire each other, and lead together.

We believe that it is time to involve both men and women in the conversation on women in leadership.

We invite you to join our diverse panelists and keynote speakers as we discuss topics related to biases and work towards creating a supportive environment for everyone.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

Josh Levs

United Nations Gender Champion, Former CNN and NPR journalist

Josh Levs is the leading global expert on fathers in the workplace, and author of All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses And How We Can Fix It Together.

The Financial Times has named Levs one of the top 10 male feminists. According to Forbes, Levs is getting corporations “to rethink an anti-dad culture.”   

Having launched legal action against one of the world’s largest corporations for fair parental leave, Levs shows that for women to “lean in” at work, men must have the opportunity to be “all in” at home. Josh explains why equal caregiving options are necessary for both men and women.
