What Best-in-Class Companies Know About Advancing Women
It’s time to create gender advocates throughout your organization. What best-in-class companies have figured out is that advancing women is not only the right thing to do — it’s also good for business. A solid women’s leadership strategy brings measurable wins in all areas of an organization from revenue to talent acquisition and retention to innovation to customer satisfaction and corporate reputation. However, companies also know that there are barriers to advancing women.
Active male engagement is one of the most critical elements needed to drive a women’s leadership initiative and overcome the barriers.
Last year as companies grappled with COVID-19, we experienced alarming rates of women leaving the workplace. Best-in-class companies recognize that we are in danger of losing decades of progress in advancing women. Because of this, they are doubling-down on efforts to focus on the recruitment, retention and advancement of women and create more advocates, particularly men!
What if you had the strategies that best-in-class companies have used successfully at your fingertips, and you could share them with every person at your company virtually?
What if you could …
- Surmount the one critical element necessary to engage more men (and women) as advocates for gender equality?
- Learn how to integrate your Women’s Leadership initiative into the everyday work of the organization?
- Understand the 10 metrics every leader can be held accountable for in advancing women?
- Convert positive beliefs about gender equity into actionable steps that men and women at any level in your organization can take to drive change?
Now you can.
I’ve taken my most popular keynotes, workshops and executive sessions and packaged them into a six-module program called Creating Gender Advocates: A Virtual Series.
While up to 30 percent of men in most organizations are ready to become advocates, many lack the skills and training to demonstrate advocacy on a daily basis. Additionally, women may lack the tools and strategies to advance and support other women. In this new six-module program, I outline the steps you and your organization must take to create real and sustainable change. Each module includes a downloadable video and participant’s guide for self- or team-paced participation.
I’ve made the first module and the bonus Business Resource Group (BRG) program available for free to help organizations plan for 2021. The balance of the virtual series is now available for purchase and will provide months of sharable content for BRGs or workgroups that are striving to achieve or maintain gender balance in the current environment.
Special Offer. To celebrate the launch of the series, today through January 31, you can purchase individual modules (normally $199) or the entire series for (normally $995) for 50 percent off. Not to sound like an infomercial, but if you act today and purchase this virtual series, you will receive 12 months of programming for your company for under $500. This content is designed to kickstart your BRG programming, get a head start on your action steps to attract and retain women and engage men in the process.
It’s a critical time to address your women’s leadership advancement initiatives to stabilize the gains you’ve already made or begin to make new gains.
