Let’s be clear—discrimination against women is systemic. And sometimes, it’s also unintentional.
The Hard, Data-Driven Truth
If your company offers a corporate development program, it likely benefits your male colleagues more than the women you work alongside. How so? Recent data shows many organizations unknowingly perpetuate the gender gap by continuing to give more time, energy, and resources to helping men rise. In doing so, intentionally or not, businesses deny women opportunities to gain the critical leadership skills necessary for advancement—opportunities to which many men have always had access.
The good news? The data also allows us to draw conclusions and make recommendations on how to remove barriers preventing women from equal leadership opportunities.
Ending the Cycle of Executive Inequality
Check out a new eBook by CreativeLive that offers insights and advice on how corporate learning and development programs can play a direct role in helping women rise. I’m honored they included my class, “Become An Influencer At Work” (page 15) as part of their recommendation.
This eBook provides concrete actions companies can take to remove barriers that are currently preventing women from rising in the ranks. It pinpoints five core areas where women need increased access to learning and skill-building opportunities, including strategic thinking.
It’s time to commit to learning and development programs that break down access barriers for women. I stand with CreativeLive in the effort to level the leadership playing field. Will you stand with me?
