Today’s event opened with a discussion between award-winning journalist Katie Couric and P&G North America Group President Carolyn Tastad. This was followed by conversations with P&G executives, employees, business partners, and organizations who are working together to dispel the myths that hold women back from being fully represented in the workplace and in the world.

A welcome from Carolyn Tastad, P&G Group President, North America.

In her opening remarks, Tastad said, “P&G aspires to build a better world for everyone – a world free from gender bias, with equal voice and equal representation for men and women – a world where everyone sees equal. We know that when we do this, communities are healthier, businesses thrive, and the world is a better place for everyone.”

More than 700 people attended the live event, which also featured “Women at Work: Myth vs Reality,” an interactive exhibit created by Seneca Women and P&G which seeks to expose the myths holding women back and change the reality for women in the workplace.
