Inspirational Talk | Shelley Zalis: The Power of Emotion... Bring it to the Boardroom

Shelley Zalis launched the Girls' Lounge in 2013 after an informal gathering in her hotel room at the Consumer Electronics Show gave birth to a movement that emphasizes mentorship and collaboration among women to create real change in the workplace. As the first female chief executive to be ranked in the research industry’s top 25, she brings over a decade of proven leadership, professional compassion, and innovation to the movement.

In 2015, Shelley Zalis went from the business of market research into the business of equality when she launched The Female Quotient, of which the Girls’ Lounge is one pillar. Her company is committed to advancing gender equality in the workplace by activating solutions for change and creating measurements for accountability. Zalis' efforts and those of the Girls' Lounge have instilled a sense of community, support, and impact among female leaders at all stages of their careers.

Be a Change Agent: What You Can Do To Advance Gender Equality Now
The United States (and the world) is going backwards on gender equality: The U.S. now ranked 49 in gender equality (down from 23rd out of 144 in 2006), according to the Global Gender Gap Report 2017. We have to stop admiring the problem and start activating solutions for change. Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, offers action steps to help drive equality now.

You will learn:

Why gender equality isn’t just a female issue, but a social and economic imperative
How to create a safe and comfortable space for employees to honestly reflect about bias, which we all have
How to attract and retain more female talent in your company
How to bring men into the equality conversation and engage them to be part of the solution

How to Create a Culture of Belonging At Work
With so many companies talking about making diversity a priority but falling short of the mark, diversity and inclusivity initiatives will be successful only if everyone experiences a feeling of belonging in the workplace. It’s not just a feel-good move; it’s good for business. Study after study has shown that diversity leads to more creative teams and more profitable companies. Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, shares solutions to creating a culture of belonging at work to help employees—and companies—thrive.

You will learn:

  • Why diversity isn’t just about gender or race, it’s also about diversity of background and mindset
    Strategies for helping each individual feel included and like she or he belongs—regardless of gender, race or sexuality

  • Practices for getting comfortable with being uncomfortable in order for companies to progress towards more inclusive workplaces

  • Why we need accountability in order for change to happen, and how to create it


The Secret to Successful Leadership Today

Leadership matters more today than ever before. Traits traditionally associated with femininity, such as empathy, collaboration and passion, are essential in today’s changing business environment.

Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, will share:

A time when she was told there was no room for emotions in the boardroom, why she didn’t listen to that advice, and how it helped her to build and sell an $83 million online research business
How men and women can cultivate their own feminine leadership strengths
Why doing so will boost your impact as a leader—and your company’s bottom line
