Krannert panel explores gender equality policies

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue's Krannert School of Management will present a panel discussion on workplace gender equality. The event is 6-7 p.m. Tuesday (Feb. 2) in Krannert Auditorium, Room 140. It is free and open to the public.

Organized by the Jane Brock-Wilson Center for Women in Management, panelists include Krannert's Ellen Kossek, Basil S. Turner Professor of Management, and Purdue Foundry's Mike Asem, director of collaborative relationships. A third panelist will be added to the lineup.

Topics include:

* Pay gap of 21 percent.

* Limited family leave.

* Workforce with few female leaders.

* The role men play as advocates for equality.

Purdue has a history of producing top female business leaders and continuously seeks opportunities to build on that tradition. In August 2015, Kossek and David Hummels, Krannert School dean and economics professor, participated in a daylong White House summit to explore ways to expand opportunities for women in business and adapt to changing workforce needs.
