As demographics and buying power shift, diversity has moved from being a fairness issue to also being a significant business driver. In a multitude of research studies, diversity in senior management has been linked to superior business results, leading to higher returns, lower risk, greater long-term focus, increased innovation and improved stockholder returns. Despite this, progress in corporate America has stalled. As a former senior Wall Street executive and now owner of the professional woman’s network, 85 Broads, Sallie Krawcheck provides unique insights, based on real-world experience into how companies can improve their diversity results.

Women and Money: Insights from the “Most Powerful Woman on Wall Street”

The U.S. is in the midst of a financial planning crisis and nowhere more so than among women. Women live on average six years longer than men, but save just two-thirds as much for retirement. The causes are widespread, from earning less than men at every stage of their careers...

The U.S. is in the midst of a financial planning crisis and nowhere more so than among women. Women live on average six years longer than men, but save just two-thirds as much for retirement. The causes are widespread, from earning less than men at every stage of their careers to outsourcing financial management to the men in their lives.

This talk can be tailored to women’s groups looking for how to engage on this, or to financial services firms who see this as a business opportunity:

For women’s groups – Krawcheck brings practical advice and tips, learned both from her business background, as well as from her own personal experience, for women at every stage of their lives.

For businesses – The business opportunity that this presents is significant, but it’s not as easy as putting a pink bow on the checking account. Many firms have failed in the pursuit of women. Krawcheck offers insights into this important and growing market, which derive from her business as well as her personal experiences.

Unraveling the secular from the merely cyclical is challenging but crucial, both for the industry, as well as for the broader economy. Krawcheck does so with an insider’s knowledge and an analyst’s perspective.
