How Your Organization Will Benefit
Throughout the world across all sectors, women continue to be inadequately represented at every level of leadership. The report, Women in the Workplace 2019, compiled by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.Org, acknowledges significant under-representation at each stratum and demonstrates the biggest obstacle women face happens early in the pipeline. To achieve gender parity within the ranks of senior leaders demands what the report identifies as “fixing this broken rung” that exists for women at the first step up to manager. Our Women in Leadership Masterclass offers an effective first step.
This masterclass is designed to:
- Prepare women for roles of greater influence
- Foster gender equity and inclusiveness
- Retain high-potential women and strengthen the leadership talent pipeline
- Create measurable and lasting organizational impact
