It’s no secret that the tech industry has a serious gender imbalance. We live in an era in which girls are told they can do anything, so why aren’t there more women in leadership roles to look up to? In 2012, Reshma Saujani founded Girls Who Code with the mission of correcting this disparity. Since then, she has sparked a national conversation about increasing the number of women in tech, and Girls Who Code has reached nearly 40,000 young girls, 90 percent of whom have declared or intend to declare a major or minor in computer science. With Google and Twitter as backers, and Facebook and AT&T (among others) signed on as mentors, the program aims to enroll 1 million women by 2020.

Drawing from her book, Women Who Don’t Wait in Line, Saujani will advocate a new model of female leadership focused on embracing risk and failure, promoting mentorship and sponsorship, and boldly charting your own course, both personally and professionally. 

Dr. Rajiv Shah surprised the world in his success with the transformation of the world’s largest global health program, the United States Agency for International Development. By advancing a new model of development that harnesses the power of business and innovation, he helped to reenergize the agency and elevate its work as part of America’s national security agenda. As USAID administrator, Dr. Shah also managed the U.S. government’s response to the devastating 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince and co-chaired the State Department’s first-ever review of American diplomacy and development operations. He earned bipartisan support creating a new platform to engage science and technology, and coupled with years of exceptional experience in leadership positions at both the United States Department of Agriculture and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Dr. Shah brings a wealth of knowledge, expertise and unique perceptions to his presentations. Audience members learn how a willingness to take risks, make sacrifices and confront injustice can coordinate the full capabilities of an organization, and how science and technology, crisis management and strategic investments play a significant role in these endeavors.

How to elevate and galvanize your team to grow in today’s turbulent times

More than half of the Fortune 500 are declining in revenue. Employee engagement is at all-time low levels. Consumer expectations have changed forever. Leaders are governed by their InBox not their Outbox. Building a company and team grounded in an inspiring purpose is the path to win in this environment.

Jim Stengel has been leading with purpose since his early days at P&G and has helped more than 80 companies discover and activate their purpose since leaving in 2008.

In this story-rich session, Jim takes the audience through anecdotes from his book GROW, and provides the insights and tools for any leader to get started or accelerate their journey as a purpose-driven leader.

How to unleash the innovators in your company

The odds of a company today to make it to 100 years old is 45 in a million. The odds to make it to 200—one in a billion. Yet legacy companies are full of passionate and committed people. How to unleash them?

In an inspiring and pragmatic engagement, Jim takes the audience through the lessons from his latest book, “Unleashing the Innovators: How Mature Companies Find New Life with Startups,” guides them through a self-assessment of their level of personal courage, and points out what to work on to become a more effective courageous leader.

How do you lead a business or brand today? You simply cannot be a master in everything. Playbooks and plans are outdated before they are executed. Leaders are more insecure and self-conscious than ever. Where do you start? What are the new principles?

Jim has helped hundreds of leaders and dozens of companies navigate the wildly shifting winds in business today. Based on his executive coaching and extensive leadership development work at UCLA Anderson and the Northwestern Kellogg School of Management, Jim shares with his audience how to lead to grow a brand in these dynamic times. Through cases, stories, and provocative questions, Jim helps his audience personalize the learning and go back to their teams with a renewed focus and confidence.
