PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Nov. 17, 2013 - PRLog -- PROVIDENCE (November 6, 2013) - Author, Global Consultant and noted Authority on Gender Dynamics in the Workplace, Susan Colantuono, CEO of Leading Women (http://www.leadingwomen.biz/) will present at the 2013 TEDxBeaconStreet (http://www.tedxbeaconstreet.com/tedxbeaconstreet-2013/) on Saturday, November 16th. Hosted by MIT and complemented with a Google simulcast, Colantuono‘s presentation will reach approximately 25,000 people across the USA and in over 100 countries.

Continuing the dialogue from Sheryl Sandberg’s TED Talk and recently released book Lean In, Colantuono’s session entitled “Closing the Gender Gap at the Top”, will unveil Leading Women’s research, providing new insights into why more women in business are not reaching executive positions and what must be done to close the gap.

“Our research clearly indicates that corporations are not effectively communicating about and women aren’t aware of 33% of the leadership success equation. This is a crucial reason why women are stuck in middle management. No matter how effectively women follow conventional advice – including to ‘lean in’ – they can not count on it to get them to the top,” states Colantuono. “Leading Women offers corporations who are serious about developing top talent and creating a level playing field the solutions they need to overcome the common barriers to women’s advancement.”

Colantuono has presented nationally and internationally on this topic at conferences including the MASS Conference for Women, W.I.N. Conference (EU), and most recently at the Global Women’s Leadership Summit.
