In a recently released video, Lori Blaker discusses the seventh of the WEP principles while speaking to a group of students at Walsh College in Troy, Michigan. The Women’s Empowerment Principles is a joint initiative between the UN Global Compact and UN Women.
When asked how TTi Global measures and publicly reports on progress related to gender equality Blaker responded, “TTi Global works with our HR teams across the company to monitor and track the progress of women in our organization into management levels. We track the progress quarterly and discuss status at least twice per year at our Senior Management Team meetings. That ensures the topic stays top of mind and we consciously work on developing and promoting opportunities for women in our company.”
When asked what benchmarks TTi Global has established to quantify inclusion of women at all levels, Blaker commented, “ I believe that we need at least 30% of women at each management level within the organization globally to ensure we will continue to grow and develop opportunities for women in our organization. Once you hit a population size of 30% the tide starts to shift and the diverse culture becomes more self sustaining. Achieving a target management population with at least 30% women leaders is the goal for our senior management team to accomplish!”
Blaker is actively involved with numerous educational and mentoring organizations including: Cornerstone Schools, Eaton Academy, Women of Tomorrow, Peace for Business and others. She encourages other business leaders to use the seven Women’s Empowerment Principles as guide posts for actions that advance and empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community.
