LEADERSHIP and DIVERSITY
in a CHANGING ECONOMY ...a special conversation with Ron Glover,
IBM Vice President, Diversity & Workforce Programs
A gathering of IBMers around the world past and present
The Global Dialogue Center was so honored to partner with the Greater IBM Women's International Network for Leadership and the Greater IBM Connection, a business and social networking global network for past and present IBMers, to host and sponsor LEADERSHIP and DIVERSITY in a CHANGING ECONOMY, a dialogue that included a special conversation with Ron Glover, IBM Vice President Diversity & Workforce Programs.
At this ONLINE gathering of IBMers past and present, Ron Glover joined us to share from his career journey and to offer insight about the role of leadership and diversity at this time of challenge, crisis, and great opportunity.
THE INSPIRATION for GATHERING:
It came from Sam Palmisano's bold vision of "A SMARTER PLANET: The Next Leadership Agenda" which he shared in his address to the Council on Foreign Relations in NYC. "...a period of discontinuity is, for those with courage and vision, a period of opportunity." He defined current realities for leaders and innovators, painting a vivid picture of a SMARTER PLANET. At our online gathering, we explored what we all need to do to be one of those leaders that will "change the game."
What happens when leaders and innovators gather ONLINE?
We all discovered the value once again!
