Action Alert | For Milken Institute, "Leading Minds" Means Men's Minds
There are so many conferences that describe themselves just like the Milken Institute Global Conference does:“The Milken Institute’s 22nd Global Conference will bring together the leading minds in business, technology, government, media, philanthropy, health care, and entertainment to deliver novel, collaborative responses to these great questions of our time.” They claim to bring together the “leading minds” in whatever field they specialize in, and a large percentage of these brilliant experts are almost always men. Take a look at the gender breakdown of the leading minds who will be answering the “great questions of our time”.
Surely, among people considered to be experts in business, technology, government, media, philanthropy, health care, or entertainment, there are many women whose voices should be heard. The Milken Institute just didn’t put in the effort to find them.
When the leading minds at conferences like @MilkenInstitute’s Global Conference 2019 are almost all men, only one perspective dominates, and true progress cannot be made. #MIGlobal #GenderAvenger https://www.genderavenger.com/blog/action-alert-milken-institute-global-conference
