To harness the power of diverse thinking the corporate world has instituted programs to increase women in the workforce and in leadership roles. Women’s forums/support group/ employee resource groups are the most popular initiatives for inclusivity implemented for women to achieve their full potential. While building a diverse workplace and an inclusive culture, we not only come across strong supporters but also those who may have different opinions about furthering gender diversity through the existing forums. In most cases the discussion over gender diversity forums or initiatives takes place subtly, in `smaller groups or one-on-ones. This session is a debate on whether it is time for Gender Diversity Forums 2.0?
