THE FUTURE OF LEADERSHIPTraining, tools, and mentoring for balanced, equal, and inclusive work environments
What We Do
We interviewed CEOs, CHROs, People and Culture Officers, as well as Diversity and Leadership experts. We asked them how the events of 2020 will affect the Future of Leadership and what we need to do to prepare leaders for.
There were four underlying themes that we uncovered and published in our Insights Paper about The Future of Leadership – A Return to Humanity.
- Theme 1: Safe Spaces
- Theme 2: Transparent Engagement
- Theme 3: New Business Code
- Theme 4: Equitable Workforce
Organizations know that increasing gender diversity and equality is not only the right thing to do but also has a positive impact on their bottom line. Many companies have some type of DEI program in place, or ERG’s, but find it is not sufficiently effective. Most struggle to bridge the gap between the necessity of educational programs as they do not know how to make a compelling business case that clearly demonstrates the benefits.
Gender parity, equal pay, diverse employee retention, and persuading predominantly white male decision makers to buy into your initiatives requires a concerted and consistent effort. We need to be transparent about the challenges that the internal drivers of these challenges have as well – there is fragility around difficult and uncomfortable conversations for a multitude of reasons. How do you get the funds allocated and then the buy-in? We help you find answer and solutions to these questions. Our focus is on designing and delivering the “how” that structures and maximizes existing programs or creates new mentorship and sponsorship initiatives. It has to be clear that this is a benefit to ALL employees, including the men, to be effective.
The Women’s Code as part of The Growth Architect’s 5-Star Success Blueprint delivers through strategic engagements such as discovery phases, facilitation, consulting, keynotes, coaching, breakout sessions, workshops, professional development, micro experiences, and implementation roll-out. We also provide equality analytics and assessments as part of our engagement solution.
