Corporate Feminism and Its Discontents  

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 | 6:15pm - 8pm
Columbia University - Maison Francaise, East Gallery
Special thanks to our cosponsors Center for Gender and Sexuality Law and Maison Francaise


Despite gains in recent years, gender and racial disparities in the corporate sector, especially in its higher echelons, remain significant in the United States and Europe. This round table will explore successes and limitations of policies to promote diversity and inclusion. Panelists will identify successful strategies but also roadblocks and unintended consequences, and raise the issue of how backlash and stasis might be addressed.
