  • Nikita Shah

Recent studies by organizations such as Dow Jones and McKinsey & Company have now established the fact that companies with multiple women serving in senior leadership positions outperform those with minimal female leadership. According to Catalyst, companies with the most female Board of Directors outperformed those with the least, on return on sales by 42% as well as return on equity by 53%*.

 

The business benefits are clear: a wider, deeper swath of talent to solve problems, more innovation, and, in many cases, diversity mirrors a company's own customer base. Yet the number of women in senior leadership roles is discouragingly low. Where is the pipeline leaking and what are the blocks?

 

This workshop will focus on discussing these critical insights into women’s career advancement

 

  • What are the various challenges women face in climbing the corporate ladder?
  • What do the traditional women development programs lack?
  • Why is it important for organizations to acknowledge that career journeys of men and women may differ?
  • What role can organizations play in addressing the particular needs of high potential women?
