What a week we had in Atlanta! OK, I’m biased. I’m based in Atlanta, so I’m so proud of the NEW Atlanta chapter and the NEW Leadership Summit that took place in our fair city.
Two weeks ago, I attended my 10th Network of Executive Women Executive Forum. Reframe was the aptly-selected theme of this year’s Forum.
Gender equality in the workplace continues to be framed as a “women’s issue.”
Unconscious bias has a huge impact on women and men in the workplace.
One of the first things we learn in business is: Don’t discuss religion, sex or politics in the workplace — ever. But regardless of your political affiliation, gender and women’s issues are being talked about every day.
During a meeting with female leaders from more than 20 Fortune 500 companies, the conversation turned to women’s employee resource groups.
One of the world's largest human resources consulting firms – Mercer – recently published “When Women Thrive, Businesses Thrive,” a revealing study of more than 3.2 million employees in 583 companies and 40 countries.
For the past few months, I have been consulting with an international grocery chain to develop and implement a fully integrated women’s leadership strategy. Our recent work focuses on the front line of retail, the store manager.
More and more, organizations are realizing the importance of male engagement in their efforts to advance their women’s leadership initiatives. Simply stated, the industry will never obtain gender parity without the active advocacy of men.
