Claudia Reuter
Techstars, General Manager, Americas East

Companies with greater levels of intersectional gender equity enjoy increased revenue, return on equity, sales productivity, ability to attract top talent, and innovation—to name just a few benefits. With the events of 2020 only heightening the urgency of DEI in the workplace, leaders need a roadmap and the right tools to help them set, measure, and reach their DEI goals. In this session, we’ll unpack the data behind how intersectional gender equity improves your business, what an actionable DEI strategy truly entails (it’s more than hiring and ERGs), and what strategies work—or don’t work—when it comes to intersectional gender equity. We’ll also explore the essential role of advanced technologies in closing equity gaps and how your company can make progress toward DEI today.
