“When a critical mass of women in senior management is obtained, companies score higher in key areas of excellence such as values, vision, capabilities, corporate culture and motivation.”
Rochester Hills, MI (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Speaking to a sold-out audience, Blaker spoke passionately on the subject of “Why Women Leadership Matters.” The event which was a partnership between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Center for Women in Business (CWB), the Rochester Regional, Auburn Hills and Troy Chambers of Commerce focused on helping employers better understand how to recruit, retain and leverage the talent of female leaders.
The timely event supported the release of a CWB report entitled, “Advancing Women to the Top” and increased media attention on the topic of women’s leadership due to the publication of Sheryl Sandburg’s book Lean In. Blaker strongly advocated for the development of women leaders in the workplace at the event saying, “When a critical mass of women in senior management is obtained, companies score higher in key areas of excellence such as values, vision, capabilities, corporate culture and motivation.”
When asked about her experiences in developing global work teams, Blaker explained, “Women serve as a catalyst for so much positive change in society. If you want to lift a family out of poverty, educate the woman. If you educate the women, you educate a nation. When business includes women society wins.”
