At Egon Zehnder, we believe that the world needs better leaders. We also believe that diverse leadership teams are better, more effective teams. For this reason, we feel strongly that organizations must incorporate diversity and inclusion when finding and developing executive talent. To support this goal, in 2015 we hosted our first Leaders & Daughters event in London, featuring both C-suite executives and their daughters as representatives of the next generation of female leaders. Since that first event, we have expanded to over 40 annual L&D events around the world, celebrating both senior executives and their mentees and/or daughters. Our goal has been to celebrate these leaders—and also to learn from them which practices and policies have been most effective at helping women succeed.
Our New York event took place on May 15, 2018 at the 620 Loft & Garden at Rockefeller Center, with approximately 100 guests in attendance. We began with a panel of four guests, moderated by Egon Zehnder’s Jennifer Reingold.
