Our mission is to reimagine leadership for modern workplaces and advance women’s leadership potential by enhancing their capabilities, confidence, credibility and connections. Our goal is to transform the global economy by creating a more balanced representation of global women leaders in executive positions, and achieve equal pay for women. Our Approach At TalentNomics, we have very different ideas about how the problem of economic empowerment of women and girls should be tackled. We believe that solutions need to be holistic and synergistic. We need to be better connected. We need to develop mutually supportive networks of women and organizations across the world. We need solutions to be experiential, focused on pragmatic actions that can be applied globally. Moreover, we need to be collaborative with successful women and men role models who inspire and impart their wisdom to develop the next generation of women leaders. We need organizations to build inclusive and supportive work environments and reimagine talent management. All these transformations need to converge and occur simultaneously, effectively leveraging global connections, knowledge and technology. About Us 1

TalentNomics will offer a platform to develop rich relationships with peers across industries and job functions, and share knowledge and insights about innovation, economic growth, and the empowerment of women.The conference will address key questions, including: What role does innovation have in driving new models of leadership? Does the empowerment of women improve the quality and pace of innovation? Are women better at certain types of innovation? What is the critical role of innovation in creating new organizations, jobs, and the next generation of global women leaders? What actions can individuals take to bring about the desired changes?
