Think Tank Executive to Discuss Gender in the Workplace
Eleanor Tabi Haller-Jorden, president and CEO of The Paradigm Forum GmbH (TPF), a global think tank and consultancy focused on creating workplaces that innovate and perform, will lecture on “Gender in the Workplace,” on Friday, Feb. 6, at 4:15 p.m., in the Kennedy Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.
She will address the popular notion of “leaning in,” made popular by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. Should we, as college graduates, be “leaning in” to our career, or is there a different lens in which to approach this?
Previously, Haller-Jorden was senior vice president, global learning strategies, at Catalyst, and was responsible for designing ground-breaking initiatives around organizational inclusion and workplace innovation in diverse cultural contexts. She has extensive leadership experience in both the private and public sectors. Apart from her work with Catalyst, she founded and managed The Paradigm Group, an international consultancy noted for its research capabilities and cutting-edge programs in global workplace design and cross-cultural management. Haller-Jorden also held the positions of officer at J.P. Morgan, lead partner at HNC Consulting, and executive director of The Learning Labs, where she developed large-scale change and learning technologies. In addition, she founded the Public Policy Centre in Philadelphia and led a range of public participation projects and research and management initiatives.
Haller-Jorden is a frequent media contributor, speaker, and lecturer. She has been interviewed for The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, BBC, and CNN, and invited to speak at the Zurich-based chapter of TED.
Her talk is funded by the Kirkland Endowment.
