The Kirsten Hall talk about women in business poses provocative questions about language and the way we see females in the workplace. Based in Boston, the South African speaker currently works at financial services provider State Street in global markets as a regulatory project manager. In her role she is "responsible for driving and implementing regulatory change projects."
She is interested in social and economic power, which certainly comes through in the Kirsten Hall talk, where the workplace equality advocate shares her views on gender in the workplace. As mentioned in the speech, she no longer belongs to any women in business networks, nor does she attend related events where women are celebrated purely for their sex.
