On behalf of KeyBank and Accenture, we are delighted to invite you to our Cleveland International Women’s Day virtual celebration.
Research conducted by Accenture and the W20, has shown that the unequal impact of the pandemic could extend the time to gender equality by 51 years – from 2120 to 2171. Our commitment to equality for all has never been more relevant than it is today – this past year has inspired us to drive innovation and continue to push ourselves as responsible business leader and engage in open, honest, and meaningful conversations.
Please join us for this year’s celebration in exploring ways in which we can harness change – inspire each other and remain resilient. How can we be empowered by change and supportive of one another while moving forward for the benefit of everyone?
The event will feature our live Cleveland IWD keynote in the morning with a panel and breakout activities. There is an option to join our pre-recorded North America Accenture Broadcast in the afternoon. We are also looking forward to providing lunch for attendees via UberEats to those who opt-in during registration.
