Simona Scarpaleggia, a Board Member of EDGE Strategy, says the new partnership will help advance the real-world benefits of gender equity, but more specifically intersectional equity when it comes to cross-generational leadership:“We know from the organizations we work with that there is an unprecedented span of generations working in today’s workforce. People are living and working for longer which means that organizations can have up to five generations with completely different life experiences, beliefs and traits co-existing in the workplace. A huge opportunity, if managed wisely and proactively.” she says.
“By championing diversity with a cross-generational mindset, we can enrich the experience not only for the organization but also for the individual concerned.”
The new four-year partnership was formally announced at the 51st St Gallen Symposium on 6 May 2022.
