Keeping Your Leadership Pipeline Open
Data shows that women are good for business, yet we continue to see lack of diversity in corporate senior leadership teams. Women contribute differing perspectives, and diversity of thought has been proven to be a critical component to success in business. To try and tackle this issue, we can start by identifying where in the pipeline emerging female leaders are falling out, and why is it happening. One of the biggest loss points for women in the workforce is after they start families; smart organizations are helping create cultures that support family AND work. It's time for business to re-evaluate their business culture and rethink how they incorporate workplace situations for both men and women with personal responsibilities. This thinking of course goes beyond women to include new parents, employees that are caring for aging parents, those supporting older children who are unemployed, etc.
