BEACHWOOD , OH — Kalypso, the world’s premier innovation consulting firm, today announced that Helayne Angelus, partner at Kalypso, will speak at the Female Executives Movement (FEM) Launch event being held November 5 and 6 in London. As a founding board member of the Network of Executive Women (NEW), Helayne will share her learnings from NEW in the U.S.
The mission of FEM is to attract, retain and advance women in the retail and consumer goods industry through education, leadership and business development. FEM believes that organizations can create more sustainable value by leveraging the entire talent pool, both women and men.
The FEM Launch event will bring together women from the retail and consumer goods industry for networking, learning and collaborative discussions on gender diversity.
As a founding NEW Board Member, Helayne helped grow NEW from 10 sponsoring companies and 50 members when it incorporated in 2001 to one of the industry’s largest learning and leadership organizations, with more than 90 national sponsors, 7,000 members and 20 chapters in the U.S. and Canada.
"Throughout my career, I have been committed to being a change agent to lead the CPG and Retail industries to become more diverse and inclusive,” said Angelus. “Organizations like FEM are crucial to leveraging the amazing power of women and essential to the continued growth and success of future generations. I look forward to sharing my insights and experiences with the women of FEM — the future leaders of tomorrow.”
Kalypso has always been dedicated to a diverse workforce where both women and men have the same opportunity to contribute and succeed. Kalypso recently started a women’s initiative program which aims to provide the firm with teachings, training and support related to women’s issues in the workplace.
Kalypso Partners Mick Broekhof and Cathi Crist will also be in attendance at the FEM Launch event. Kalypso representative Silvia Toma will be available throughout the conference.
