Newly Announced Ninth Keynote to Reveal Findings from New Study, Including Takeaways for Increasing Resilience While Navigating the COVID-19 Era 


PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Oct. 13, 2020 -- The HR Technology Conference & Exposition® today announced that renowned researcher, New York Times best-selling author and leading authority on employee productivity, leadership and management, Marcus Buckingham, will deliver the keynote, “Resilience: How to Build It in Yourself and in Those You Lead.” Buckingham, founder of the Strengths Revolution and known as the world’s top expert on strengths and talent, will, for the first time, publicly reveal findings from the largest-ever global study on resilience, including what constitutes resilience, what causes it and how to build it across organizations. Buckingham will present at the free virtual event on Thursday, October 29, 2020, at 3:00 p.m. ET.


During his session at HR Tech, Buckingham, using the research as a guide, will share actionable insights and advice, offering attendees specific prescriptions to increase resilience in themselves and those they lead. Buckingham’s research undertook two field studies to answer: what is resilience and how can people cultivate it in their own lives? The first study focused on identifying the sources of resilience, pinpointing how to measure it and the best ways to build it. The second study posed ten key questions to more than 25,000 working adults from 25 countries and looked at how a country’s response to COVID-19 impacted resilience levels.


Rebecca McKenna, Vice President, Global Events and Publisher at LRP Media Group, commented, “We’re thrilled to have Marcus present at this year’s HR Technology Conference and on such an important topic. 2020 continues to test the resilience of individuals, teams and organizations. It’s become a skill that everyone needs to cultivate and nurture, both at work and in their everyday lives. With Marcus’ industry expertise and recent research, this will be another ‘can’t miss’ session.”


The HR Technology Conference & Exposition® will take place Tuesday, October 27 – Friday, October 30, 2020. Buckingham will join a stacked roster of keynotes, which also includes Jason Averbook, CEO and founder of Leapgen; Josh Bersin, global industry analyst and dean of The Josh Bersin Academy; Stacia Garr, co-founder and principal analyst of RedThread Research; Stacey Harris, Chief Research Officer for Sapient Insights Group and Dr. Tolonda Tolbert, co-founder and head of Strategy and Culture at Eskalera.

What Percentage of the Workforce is Female in 2020?

Apr 29, 2020 10:26:12 AM / by HR Tech posted in hr tech, women in HR Tech, Women in HR Tech Summit, workforce diversity, HR Tech 2020, women in workforce, females in the workforce


Women are making big strides in the workforce in 2020, yet they face big challenges going forward.  A U.S. Labor Department’s report in December showed that women make up the majority of the workforce at 50.04%.  Yet, even with the mass number of women in the workforce, the percentage of executive-level roles held by women remains relatively low. Only 6% of the Fortune 500 have women as CEOs and only 2% or 60 of the Russell 3000 companies (the 3,000 largest companies domiciled in the U.S. and U.S. territories) have a board made up of at least 50% women according to Equilar.

Nobody would argue that those percentages aren’t low, but they are up from what it was just a few years ago. Change, although slow, is happening as reflected in the increase seen for the past nine consecutive quarters in the Equilar Gender Diversity Index (GDI), a quarterly update of female directors in the Russell 3000. Additionally, according to the Women in Workplace 2019 report by McKinsey & Company and Lean In, more companies have higher numbers of female C-level executives than in previous years.

Though the numbers are improving, the question remains, how do we help our organizations create a culture of inclusion and diversity.
