Companies and firms across industries and organizational sizes are failing to recruit, retain, and advance women into senior roles and responsibilities. A DDI World Study identified that 37% of business leaders are women in the top 20% of financial performing companies. (DDI World Study, 2016)
And yet, companies continue to overlook the value of women for senior leadership opportunities. Women leave jobs that provide no clear path for their future career with no audience for their voices to be heard or valued. In certain situations women also feel the pressure to be pigeon-holed on the ‘mommy track’ for their future.
Firms and Companies Need the Diversity of Insight, Experience, and Approach Unique to Women
Women can impact the ROI of companies by empowering others, maintaining the highest standard of integrity and ethics, excelling in communication, and improving productivity.
Unfortunately, many women face a myriad of setbacks and obstacles in their quest to achieve equity and lasting impact on their organizations. Symptoms of these experiences can include:
- Low confidence – Women need opportunities to show their value to their company and build greater confidence for the future.
- Self-doubt – Women often wrongly listen to the voices in their heads rather than the internal and external feedback they receive. In many cases women need the nudge to stand up for themselves.
- Not being heard – Women are often interrupted or have their ideas hijacked for someone’s acclaim.
- Lack of control over career trajectory – Many women recognize there are times when changes needs to be made, but they often don’t know where to begin.
