Miller speaks on women in workplace,
philanthropy trends

Jane Miller, chief operating officer at Gallup, spoke at the WIN gathering in an interview format with WIN Chair Candy Henning. 

Miller said Gallup's studies on workplace engagement and employee wellbeing have shown that employers may need to offer more flexibility to attract employees in a very competitive environment. Women, she said, have different views about work and the perception of what women need in the workplace varies greatly.
