This workshop will provide you with tools to help move your company's approach to advancing women into leadership roles from a series of programmatic elements to a completely integrated women's leadership strategy. 

Business metrics show the value of having women in top leadership positions. Yet progress is still slow, and it will take over 50 years for women to achieve parity in roles and compensation. What do organizations need to do to accelerate the advancement of women? You will learn how best-in-class companies are attracting, retaining and advancing women. These companies are applying a dual-pronged strategy. First, they are taking an integrated approach to connect all functional business areas to women's advancement. Second, they have active male engagement. You will discover how to:

  • Build an integrated women's leadership strategy and create companywide women's leadership plans.
  • Drive operating effectiveness and profit through integrated talent and workplace strategies designed to recruit, retain and advance women.
  • Deepen your understanding of the critical role HR plays from a functional and enabling standpoint.
  • Identify and recruit male champions (especially senior leadership).
