The keys to making gender equality a reality in the workplace are the subject of "Power of the Pack," an event being held tonight (Oct. 18) as part of Communications Week.

Shelley Zalis, CEO of The Female Quotient, will set out to debunk the idea that women need to become more like men to move ahead. Embracing their feminine characteristics, Zalis says, will make women stand out, not hold them back.

Zalis will be interviewed by Weber Shandwick senior vice president, diversity & inclusion Judith Harrison. Harrison is also president of New York Women in Communications, which is sponsoring the event.

The event takes place at The New York Times building (620 8th Ave.) and runs from 6 p.m to 8 p.m.

Online registration for the event is closed, but on-site registration is still available. For more information, go to the NYWICI website.
