Event Details

Join us for a Fireside Chat with Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, Chief Innovation Officer of ManpowerGroup. During this session, Dr. Tomas will share more about his book Why do so many incompetent men become leaders?

In his book, Dr. Tomas asks two powerful questions: Why is it so easy for incompetent men to become leaders? And why is it so hard for competent people--especially competent women--to advance?

When competent women--and men who don't fit the stereotype--are unfairly overlooked, we all suffer the consequences. Dr. Tomas will share more about what is critically flawed in the system, show us what it really takes to lead and how new systems and processes can help us put the right people in charge.

*Event to officially start at 12:45pm. There will be catered buffet lunch prior to the event, so please let us know if you are no longer able to make it.
