Yesterday we had our third Twitter Chat* on « Gender Diversity in Top Management: A Corporate Necessity » in order to debate around 5 questions:
1. Please introduce yourself: name, organization, field of work and country.
2. According to your knowledge and experience, is gender diversity at executive committee level a competitive advantage for firms?
3. How can companies leverage gender diversity to drive innovation and performance?
4. Why does gender diversity at the top remain a challenge, and what are the effective measures to tackle it?
5. What is the role of regulatory action or governmental support for promoting diversity in management?
In order to have a rich discussion we invited experts to lead the debate:
– Marc Goergen (@), Professor of finance at Cardiff Business School & Research Associate of European Corporate Governance Institute, author, United Kingdom
– Odile Robotti (@), founder and MD at Learning Edge; Co-founder and president of MilanoAltruista and ItaliaAltruista; author and blogger; Italy

*A Twitter Chat is a scheduled event that allows participants to engage on a topic using a designated hashtag on Twitter. A host/moderator guides the conversation (EVE Programme) and featured guests answer the questions (you!). Followers can participate by submitting questions or responding to our guests.
**A Storify is a social digital tool that allows you to look back on an event, blending together story-telling (as you would on a regular blog), curation (pulling product content from other sources: Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) and interaction (you are notified for example when your tweet is used on Storify).
