Amy Diehl, PhD - Gender Equity Speaker

GENDER EQUITY SPEAKER

Speaking & Events

Dr. Amy Diehl is sought-after speaker for conferences, workshops, guest lectures, and panels. Topics include gender bias, women in leadership, how mothers can navigate bias, identity-based criticisms of women, gendered ageism, and navigating adversity, barriers and obstacles.

She helps leaders learn how to transform their organizations into gender-equitable, inclusive workplaces and empowers women to understand workplace gender bias and to succeed at work. While a biased workplace may tell a woman that she’s not good enough, that the problems she encounters are her fault, and that she should limit her aspirations, it’s not true. Women are enough and should not take the problems they encounter personally. It’s the workplace culture that must change, not the women.

Her speaking resonates in all industries. Past clients have included The World Bank, Amazon, University of California San Francisco, University of South Carolina, Dataiku, Institute of Management Accountants, College Promise, WILD Network, Royal Hospital for Children (Scotland), Purdue University, Pennsylvania Bar Association, and the US Department of State.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

What a great presentation!!  You had everyone talking after your session.  I cannot thank you enough for the information you shared!  It was impactful and meaningful.“

—Dr. Mary Alexander,  Assistant Provost and Chief of Staff, University of South Carolina

Your review and expertise is exactly what I was hoping for, Amy! Thank you so much for your willingness to support the work in this way. “

—Mickey Porter,  PlusONE Leadership
