Duration: 1 hour
While women have made great strides in leadership, globally the proportion of women in senior roles of organizations has been stuck at 24% for the last decade. There are currently fewer women running S&P 1500 companies than men named John. As early as 4th grade, girls start opting out of leadership roles, and at the current rate of improvement, it will take 118 years to close the global gender gap.
That’s where we come in.
For more than 3 decades, the Center for Creative Leadership® (CCL) has pioneered efforts to help girls, women, organizations, and communities globally R.I.S.E. through groundbreaking research and innovative learning experiences.
