Rethink the Gender Gap (NYC)

News Story

Mind the gap! Google's head of Market Intelligence and Strategy Marissa Gottfried is coming to Pace to teach us how to reach our true career and leadership potential.

Using Social Sciences to Rethink the Gender Gap
Thursday, February 25
3:45 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
Seidenberg Lounge, 163 William Street, 2nd Floor
NYC Campus

Join the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems and Marissa Gottfried, head of Market Intelligence and Strategy at Google, as they address leadership from a unique perspective that is seldom discussed in professional discourse. Drawing on research across organizational psychology and the social sciences, they’ll explore the latest insights on the science of leadership and its implications on our careers. 

More specifically, they’ll offer the idea that all social perceptions are based on only two criteria and how they manifest themselves in compelling and effective leaders. They’ll pay special attention to its implications for women, then establish a simple but profound framework for developing our personal leadership potential. The ultimate goal is to get us thinking differently so we can lead more fulfilling careers and reach our true potential.
