Study after study supports that having strong representation of women in leadership within a company leads to improved performance. Yet companies are stymied about how to support the advancement and retention of women leaders. Frequently they establish a networking group for women and then are puzzled why that does not change the outcome. This course will outline the more common challenges that women face and how companies can take practical steps to change the culture leading to improved diversity in the leadership pipeline.
