Join Us to Make Change Together

The Executive Working Group (EWG) is the Center for Women and Business's community of practice that bring scholars, practitioners, leaders, and frontline employees to explore best practices in organizational development and workplace intersectional gender equity, diversity, inclusion, and corporate social justice.  With roots in human resource compliance and equal employment opportunity laws, diversity, equity, and inclusion in organizational change is not a new industry.  Today, the benefits of diversity and inclusion are proven to advance social change.  Collaboration between business and DEIJ consultants, practitioners, and scholars is necessary to advance evidence-based, action-oriented interventions to support DEIJ efforts in organizations.

Upcoming Events

Changing the Face of the C-Suite: Supporting Caregivers in the Workplace

Date: Thursday, November 30, 2023
Time: 8:30 am – 10:30 am ET

Supporting caregivers of all circumstances in the workplace is a business imperative and one that also addresses a critical step toward gender equity. In partnership with Cambridge Savings Bank, we invite you to join us as we learn about the post-pandemic landscape of caregiver resources, the challenges of caregiving obligations, the implications of career interruptions, and the struggle of reentry from extended leaves. We will hear from employees who are catalysts for their new caregiver ERG as well as explore Bentley’s recent efforts to create more equitable leave of absence and return-to-work policies that support caregivers. 

Join us to gain insights and recommendations for both employers and individuals focused on creating a collaborative culture of care.
