Bridging the Gender Gap – a New Approach to Shattering the Glass Ceiling

Presented by Deborah Rocco

Watch the recording, on-demand, below.

Presented by Training Magazine. Despite strong efforts in many organizations, women continue to be poorly represented in top leadership roles worldwide. This means many businesses are failing to reap the well-documented "gender dividend." So what are all these well-meaning companies doing wrong?

Chances are, they are looking at “advancing women leaders” as a development issue, or perhaps as a hiring-and-promoting challenge — when, in fact, it’s a culture change issue.  Advancing women into leadership roles successfully requires bringing together all stakeholders (and both genders) in a concerted change effort, with support and energy from top leadership. The organization must change, to bridge the gender gap and make the very best use of all its talent, thereby gaining a competitive advantage.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The gender dividend: the business advantage of developing women leaders in the organization.
  • Why addressing this challenge as a change effort that brings many stakeholders together is essential to success.
  • How your change management initiative can succeed in bridging the gender gap to include everyone.
  • How to use your talent management strategy as a key lever.
  • Some specific skills women leaders need to be effective in positions of power.
