How The Women’s Code
Professional Development Works For Your Company
Organizations know that promoting gender diversity and equality is not just the right thing to do but it also makes a huge difference to your bottom line. In our Insights Paper, where we’ve looked at and evaluated the statistics, we call this Acting Like a Girl Is Good For Business.
Many companies start programs, yet they demand more effective and innovative programs for faster results. Gender parity, equal pay, diverse employee retention, and getting a predominantly white male workforce to buy into your initiative to achieve lasting, forward thinking culture change requires a concerted effort. Find out how to work 1-on-1 with equality expert Beate to achieve your goals and learn how to train and develop balanced leaders:

The Women’s Code has identified the number one overlooked reason why equality programs don’t take off: women’s leadership attributes remain largely undefined in comparison to male leadership attributes. Our solution is simple. We know men and women are not the same and The Women’s Code does not focus on treating them the same. Rather we seek the equivalent. Here is a question that I ask my live audiences: A man who is 6′ and weighs 200 pounds lifts a sand sack that weighs 100 pounds. If a woman who is 5’5″ and weighs 120 pounds does she lift the same or the equivalent weight? (If you have difficulties answering that or if a lightbulb just went off, please contact me right away!
“There are a million ways to be successful and you only need to find one – yours.”

That’s why we start with identifying what we call a unique and customized “Sliding Scale of Leadership Attributes.” Once identified, team members select attributes that they can innately identify with and want to assimilate. This solves many issues because it:
- Creates additional metrics for performance reviews
- Empowers employees to build on their strengths
- Reduces friction between men and women on teams
- Lessens unconscious bias by focusing instead on skill set and capability
- Builds employee awareness regarding each other’s strengths
- Aids in team building
- Increases innovation and individual ownership
- Provides new communication methods in the workplace for women and men
- Gives effective strategies for dealing with difficult employees
- Delivers better results
In addition, The Women’s Code can provide structure for existing sponsor or mentorship programs that identify and develop high potentials. We evaluate and provide guidelines to improve accountability and measurable results.

The Women’s Code supports its clients to achieve balanced leadership. Our focus is designing and delivering the “how” that structures and maximizes existing programs or creates new mentor and sponsorship initiatives and implements new balanced leadership courses. Lasting internal cultural change can only be achieved if everyone buys into your initiative. More than that it should benefit all employees, including the men, to be effective.
The Women’s Code does this through professional development and training, customized strategy development, and implementation rollout. We can also provide equality analytics and assessments as part of our proposed solution.
