    12:00pm to 1:00pm



    Losing a loved one, a job or a relationship can leave us feeling aimless, confused and heartbroken—to the point where it becomes difficult to focus on daily needs.

One reason is that companies have tended to take an add-diversity-and-stir approach, while business continues as usual. Join Robin Ely, the Diane Doerge Wilson Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School and founder/faculty chair of the HBS Gender Initiative, as she explains why companies have made so little progress, exposes flaws in the current “business case” for diversity, and outlines what...
