Join us on Friday, March 11th, 2022 for “Advancing Pay Equity in a Post-Pandemic World,” a two-part virtual conversation with business executives on pay equity and a promotability workshop with Amii Barnard-Bahn.

The Global Connections for Women Foundation presents a 2-part virtual event on Advancing Pay Equity in a Post-Pandemic World: panel discussion and promotability workshop for an immersive experience on best practices for advancing pay equity in the workplace and a promotability workshop to overcome career obstacles with 5 key elements: executive presence, self-awareness, thought-leadership, strategic thinking, and external awareness. 

Part I: Advancing Pay Equity in a Post-Pandemic World Panel with Business Leaders and Corporate Executives

The global pandemic has inevitably expanded the complexities around advancing gender equity in most workplaces. One of the biggest threats to this agenda is the allure of widened pay and promotion inequities for women in the workforce. According to HBR, nearly 3 million women have exited the workforce at the start of 2021, compared to the previous year, resulting in a 33-year low in women’s participation in the labor market. This 33-year low trends are alarming for “women account for at least 50% of the most talented part of the workforce and women are at the top of the curve on IQ, emotional intelligence, creativity, and leadership skills.” McKinsey and Oxford Economics estimated that the increase in female talent scarcity will continue until 2024 before we can start to return to pre-pandemic levels. 

The need to re-build and re-address the current threats to gender equity is why the Global Connections for Women Foundation has created a unique virtual event to bridge the knowledge gap. The panel discussion will engage business leaders and corporate executives on 1) recommendations for a new corporate policy on gender equity, 2) addressing the female talent scarcity, 3) dissolving the disparities in pay equity and promotability, and 4) exploring an actionable DEI game plan. 

Part II: Promotability Workshop with Amii Barnard-Bahn, Author and Executive Coach

Being promotable can fast track your career. It means you have skills that are highly sought after and valued in your current or a future role. When you possess these skills it means you’re at the top of your game — and that gives you better career choices and/or better relationship with your customers if you are a business owner.

The promotability workshop is based on the book “The Promotability Index Guidebook” and led by the author, Amii Barnard-BahnThe promotability workshop is a unique opportunity to assess your promotability index 1) to overcome career obstacles with the five key elements: executive presence, self-awareness, thought-leadership, strategic thinking, and external awareness, 2) to gain new insights on how to elevate your career, and 3) to improve your assertiveness in your workplace or in your business.

All guests will be invited to complete the promotability index (PI) assessment available on The insights from your PI results will help you understand your promotability Index? what obstacles exists? suggestions on where to start?
