Lean Out

Keynote: Marissa Orr

More than half a century since the equal pay act, the wage gap still hovers at 80% and only 5% of CEOs in the Fortune 500 are women. With her book “Lean Out” Marissa Orr attempts to answer the question few dare to ask: what have we gotten wrong about women at work? Based on in-depth research and personal experiences Marissa exposes the systemic dysfunction at the heart of today’s most powerful corporations and how their pursuit to close the gender gap has come at the expense of female well- being. She doesn’t simply present a counterargument to modern feminist rhetoric but offers a revolutionary path forward to change the trajectory of the lives of women and men in the corporate world and beyond.
