In honor of Women’s History Month, WELD’s annual Keynote event brings nationally known speakers and leaders to Columbus to advance the dialogue around women’s issues, challenges, and opportunities.

At this year’s Keynote, the Columbus chapter will focus on Moving Forward:  The New Playbook for Advocacy, building on the theme for the 2020 Women WELDing the Way® calendar Moving Forward:  Run…Don’t Walk!

 

Let the announcements begin! WELD is thrilled to share that John W. Rogers, Jr., Chairman, Co-CEO and Chief Investment Officer of Ariel Investments, will join our Keynote lineup on the topic of Moving Forward: The New Playbook for Advocacy. Men are uniquely positioned to increase diversity in the board room and C-suite. Join us for an engaging evening to learn the strategies in his playbook to advance women leaders.

A firm with approximately $13 billion in assets under management, Ariel asks all the companies that it has invested in about the diversity of their investment managers, their investing teams and their boards.  “We can point to 35 times where we were able to move the needle in terms of the diversity of their boards,” Mr. Rogers said. (Investment News, Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion Lifetime Achievement Award interview)

Beyond, Ariel, John is a board member of McDonald’s, NIKE, The New York Times Company and serves as the vice chair of the board of trustees of the University of Chicago.

The fact that women’s representation in the upper ranks of management and that women-owned businesses still face greater obstacles in obtaining capital is not just a women’s issue!  Men are uniquely positioned to advocate for women, increase accountability for diversity and inclusion and sponsor women. 

This Keynote is one Not. To. Miss.
