We met Sarah at this summer’s Fancy Food Show in New York presented by the Specialty Food Association. I was intrigued by her EXCITE talk on innovation and what makes a food entrepreneur and checked out the products from OSU entrepreneurs displayed at the show’s “LevelUP” Future of Food exhibit.

Whether it’s food made from sea byproducts, sourced from the ground, or re-purposed from food waste, Sarah and her team help nurture entrepreneurs and drive innovation. What may be coming out of Oregon could be hitting the food shelves and our plates down the road.

Future-Proof Workplace: What Men Need to Know to Champion Women into Leadership Roles

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show! Our special guest is Richard Nesbitt, co-author of Results at the Top: Using Gender Intelligence to Create Breakthrough Growth.

Women make up less than 5 percent of the CEOs at S&P 500 companies. Yet, virtually every financial study conducted since the 1980’s on the financial performance of companies that have women on their boards and on their executive teams, have shown that sharing leadership with women produces superior financial performance in organizations. There are few, if any, thought leaders who have written specifically to men on how they become more gender-intelligent and what they can and should do to advance women into leadership roles. Join us in our interview of best-selling author Richard Nesbitt to learn the latest steps you can take to advance diversity in the workplace. This is not just for men!

Richard Nesbitt is president and CEO of Global Risk Institute. He is also adjunct professor at the Rotman School of Management of the University of Toronto and chair of the advisory board to its Mind Brain Behaviour Hive.
