Written by Amanda

Please join us for a broadcast of our seventh AS/COA Women’s Hemispheric Network (WHN) Forum in Miami. This year’s event brought together business and community leaders for a keynote presentation, two panel conversations, and a workshop.

Opening Keynote & Q+A: Being an Ally. Voces de E! Amplifying Women’s Voices 

Marcello Coltro, Senior Vice President, Affiliates, Marketing & Creative, NBCUniversal Media

Panel I: The Three W’s—Women and Well-Being in the Workplace

The pandemic caused a seismic shift in the global workforce, sparking terms like the “Great Resignation” and “the Great Reshuffle.” More than two years into Covid, employees are reassessing their value equation when it comes to work, and well-being has become a key aspect of that. According to Microsoft’s Work Trend Index 2022, 56 percent of women surveyed say they’re more likely now to prioritize their health and well-being over work than before. According to Deloitte’s Women @ Work 2022: A Global Outlook, 53 percent of women say their stress levels are higher than they were a year ago. Burnout was cited by 40 percent of women actively looking for a new employer as the reason they’re pursuing a job change. In the post-Covid world, companies must factor in well-being—understanding their employees as whole individuals—to attract and retain the best talent.

Panel II: Women Leading Crypto & Fintech

As crypto expands and gains more relevance in the financial and business world, it’s clear that it is a male-dominated industry. A Pew Research Center survey found that only 19 percent of women ages 18-29—compared with 43 percent of men in that age range—have invested in, traded, or used a cryptocurrency. Moreover, there is a striking gap in the number of women vs. men working in this growing industry. Given the potential for digital currencies to transform financial systems, women need a space to lead, develop, and invest in the sector. Despite initial challenges, leaders and organizations are dedicated to creating opportunities to improve diversity and inclusion in the crypto space.
