All over the world, employers and leaders from different backgrounds and life experiences manage diverse teams and employees. So how can these leaders effectively work to overcome bias and drive creativity and value?
Economist and bestselling author Sylvia Ann Hewlett advises organizations large and small to do that by using their very own talent-pool for innovation, solutions and insights – and embracing the “power of difference” and leveraging new ideas across gender, generation, sexual orientation, race, and culture.
The founding President and CEO of the Center for Talent Innovation, Hewlett and her team look at changes and trends in the world and examine their effects on the workplace. Her signature style of speaking blends hard data and analysis with concrete and practical solutions.
A sought-after speaker, Hewlett is the co-director of the Women’s Leadership Program at the Columbia Business School, the founding partner of Hewlett Consulting Partners LLC, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
She is the author of 14 Harvard Business Review articles and 12 critically acclaimed and award winning books, including Executive Presence: The Missing Link Between Merit and Success; Creating A Life: Professional Women and the Quest for Children, and Winning the War for Talent in Emerging Markets: Why Women Are the Solution.
A featured blogger on HBR Blog Network, LinkedIn, and the Huffington Post, Sylvia has appeared on Charlie Rose, ABC World News Tonight, The View, and BBC World News.
