ROSELAND, N.J., Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading global provider of human capital management (HCM) solutions, hosted human resource industry thought leader Naomi Bloom and futurethink CEO Lisa Bodell at its annual Executive Women in Leadership (WIL) conference today in Basking Ridge, N.J. 

More than 100 senior-level women executives from across ADP's global organization gathered for this annual two-day WIL conference.  Founded more than decade ago as a grassroots organization of senior executive women at ADP, WIL promotes leadership and career advancement opportunities for women.  In the U.S. more than half of ADP associates are women and more than 40% are managers.

"Championing women in the workplace and preparing the next generation of women leaders for success are core goals of ADP's Executive Women in Leadership group," said Pam Durkin, division vice president, general manager and chairwoman of ADP's WIL group.  "Our annual WIL conference gives ADP senior executives a chance to learn from leading women in business both inside and outside the company."

Featured speakers include:

  • Naomi Bloom, Managing Partner, Bloom & Wallace:  Naomi is a renowned consultant, analyst, thought leader and independent voice throughout the human resource management (HRM) industry.  She specializes in the application of HR technology and innovative service delivery models to achieve breakthroughs in business outcomes.  In addition to her work at Bloom & Wallace, a solo consultancy she founded in 1987, Naomi also is a frequent speaker and author.
  • Lisa Bodell, CEO, futurethink:  A leading innovation expert and futurist, Lisa founded futurethink in 2003 to provide a simple approach to the otherwise complicated topic of innovation.  She also authored the culture-change book, Kill the Company: End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution, which was named one of the "Best Business Books of 2012" by booz&co.
  • Regina Lee, President, Major Account Services and ADP Canada:  Regina is a 31-year veteran of ADP, member of the Executive Committee and is the highest-ranking female executive at the company.  Having held numerous senior-level positions during her tenure at ADP, she helped create the WIL group more than a decade ago, serves as its executive sponsor and is also a Trustee of the ADP Foundation.

"Insights from high-performing colleagues, mentors and industry visionaries helped propel my career forward, so I'm passionate about sharing 'great learnings' with aspiring women executives and entrepreneurs," said Naomi Bloom, Managing Partner, Bloom & Wallace.  "My ADP WIL session addresses why I believe the HCM industry is heading into a 'discontinuous future,' and the impact this could have on women executives' careers, companies and communities."

"One common attribute of successful companies – regardless of size – is a sharp focus on mentoring and developing future business leaders," said Regina Lee, President, Major Account Services and ADP Canada.  "WIL is just one example of ADP's investment in growing top talent through networking and educational opportunities to help advance careers."

ADP is widely recognized for its dedication to inclusiveness and diversity.  In 2013 and 2012, DiversityInc magazine ranked ADP among its "Top 50 Companies for Diversity" and a "Top 10" Company for Women, Latino and Veterans.  In 2012, Working Mother magazine included ADP on its list of the "100 Best Companies for Working Mothers."  In 2013, Diversity MBA Magazine listed ADP among the "Top 50 Out Front Companies for Diversity Leadership."  In addition, the Human Rights Campaign Foundation named ADP one of the "Best Places to Work for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Equality" in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
