“Companies with leadership in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity were 35% more likely to have financial returns above their industry median.”*

Diversity in leadership is proven to deliver real benefits. Time and time again, research (such as that completed by the Scientific American, International Monetary Fund, and McKinsey & Company) quantifies the value of diversity in the workplace. It shows a substantial positive correlation between diverse leadership teams, innovation, customer satisfaction, financial performance, and other elements crucial for business success.

*According to a McKinsey & Company report


Madeline Weiss, APC Director, invites CIOs to come as a guest to the February 9-10 virtual APC meeting.

Attending as a guest will be a great opportunity to explore digital transformation across the enterprise and how remote work can enhance the corporate culture while networking with highly respected peers. Our researcher speakers are George Westerman from MIT (building digital cultures), Michael Wade from IMD in Switzerland (improving digital transformation success post-covid-19), Nicholas Berente from Notre Dame (platform inversion), and Madeline (leading in remote working culture).

Email Madeline at Madeline.Weiss@simnet.org to let her know you are interested in coming as a guest on Feb. 9 and 10.

SIM's Advanced Practices Council is an exclusive membership program for senior technology executives at leading companies. We cap membership at 40 executives per year, which allows for intimacy among members and Vegas-style rules. There is no selling. Our members select the topics for the year and we find the best researchers worldwide to conduct the research.
