Duration: 1 hour
We know that organizations are improving the gender equity in hiring practices. However, fewer women than men are reaching significant positions in the senior positions, and this can have an impact on the bottom line. Organizations with women leaders in senior positions outperform organizations without women in these senior positions. What are the individual actions women can take, and what are the questions we can asks ourselves as an organization to maintain top talent in our workforce?
In this session we share the choices women are making to show up as effective leaders. You will:
- Assess unintentional obstacles to women’s promotion
- Learn tools to further your leader development with identity work
- Identify the structure and three characteristics of effective networks that the top performers use
- Hear which questions women have been asking of their organizations to challenge status quo
Target Audience: Women interested in leading within their organizations and managers who want to support leader development
