Suzanne Walker was a panel moderator for The Impact of #MeToo and the Time’s Up Movement on Diversity & Inclusion Programs at the Bank Director Executive Compensation and Talent Conference. The presentation description is below. 

Studies show that companies with a diverse workforce outperform non-diverse ones and inclusive organizations are more engaged and productive. As a result, organizations are seeing the business reasons for a robust D&I program which can include, among other things, mentorships for women. During this session, we discuss the unintended consequences of #MeToo on mentoring, specifically the concerns male managers have in the current social environment and what organizations can do to structure a D&I program that addresses these concerns. We will also discuss how the Time’s Up movement has put pay equity in the spotlight and resulted in changes in certain state laws.
