He Says, She Says – practicing gender intelligence

Men and women may be different, but valuing, understanding and leveraging these differences is the core foundation of gender intelligence — a way of thinking that brings us closer together and helps us communicate more effectively. How we behave and the attitudes shaping our behavior contribute to this intelligence.

On Thursday, October 23, we invite you to join us at DigitasLBi for an exciting, insightful discussion about bridging communication gaps through an understanding of gender intelligence. Considering why people behave a certain way is a big step in the right direction. Your takeaways: understanding gender intelligence, native gender intelligence differences and bridging communication gaps.

Want to boost your intelligence quotient? RSVP today! Join the conversation now and during the event on Twitter with #HeSaysSheSays.
