Form Powerful Relationships that Drive Equity in the Workplace

While women in general are underrepresented in corporate leadership, women of color are dramatically underrepresented. Working together, women of all racial identities can become powerful “co-conspirators” in achieving gender and racial equity at the highest levels of leadership–and transforming workplace culture. 

This on-demand experience, designed and led by Tuck School of Business professor and foremost thought leader on workplace inclusion Ella Bell Smith, is designed to help all women leaders move beyond the concept of allyship to forge relationships of mutual support that affect organizational and systemic change. 

You’ll learn:


  • The unexpected sources of the racial divide between women
  • Ground rules for difficult conversations about race
  • How to create change as a “co-conspirator”


Ella Bell Smith was interviewed for a recent article for ExecOnline. Read “Strategic, Courageous, and Consistent: How to be a co-conspirator to accelerate gender parity in the workplace.”
