Carey Dean Alexander Triantis and McKinsey Senior Partner Nora Gardner moderated the discussion that featured a group of distinguished panelists – Karen Peetz (MS ’81), chief administrative officer, Citigroup; Lesley Slaton Brown, vice president and chief diversity officer, HP Inc.; and Kevin Sowers, president, Johns Hopkins Health System.
The panelists provided their insights into the McKinsey report while also describing their experiences with gender-related issues in the workplace.
In his introductory remarks, Triantis said, “One of the core values of Carey Business School is collaborative leadership. As a school, we demonstrate our collaborative leadership through our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and belonging, which we strive to foster in everything we do. We also know that as a society, we still have more work ahead in achieving these cherished ideals in the workplace. Women, particularly women of color, have historically faced many challenges in the workplace. … Many of these longstanding challenges and inequities have been compounded by the current stress and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
