As a management consultant with a Gender Studies MA, Emily Howe (aka Femily) helps companies improve on women's and LBGT+ inclusion.
In this session, she will give her top recommendations from what CPA firms and other companies can do to recruit and retain not only LBGT+ employees, but also the increasing numbers of allies who want to work in the LBGT-inclusive environment of the workplace future.
For 20+ years, Emily Howe ("Femily") has consulted with Fortune 500 companies, Bay Area-based tech companies, public and private universities, nonprofit and arts organizations, philanthropic groups, and business leaders.
From Silicon Valley's Watermark Conference for Women to San Francisco's Commonwealth Club, Femily speaks frequently with companies and at events about advancing women and LBGT people. She is an expert media source for outlets such as C-SPAN, KQED, Fast Company, Bustle, The Telegraph, and Thrive Global by Arianna Huffington.
Femily's popular, digital "Rebel Boss" leadership courses give ambitious women concrete, evidence-based instruction on leading as a women in today's world, rebelling against dis-empowering "shoulds," outsmarting "isms", and making career plans that really "stick."
In 2018, Femily founded the American Association of Corporate Gender Strategists to address a growing demand for practitioners in the field. That same year, she launched San Francisco's Executive Womxn's forum at the Commonwealth Club. Femily serves on the board of Inforum, the innovation lab for the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum
