"We're delighted Global Women 4 Well-Being is producing this important Pre-Conference Symposium at the ARIA Resort, the site of this year's Health & Benefits Leadership Conference," said David Shadovitz, editor of Human Resource Executive® and program chair of HBLC. "Despite the significant progress that has been made in recent years, barriers continue to stand in the way of women in the health and benefits field— impediments that ultimately undermine the field's ability to innovate and thrive. GW4WB was formed because it recognized the challenges and opportunities surrounding this business-critical issue — and it gives us great satisfaction to be able to support it in its efforts."
