A Way Forward: Women in Leadership Summit offers current female corporate leaders a diverse community to enhance skills and share ideas to build more inclusive environments in which they can improve personal and organizational performance.
“Brandon Hall Group’s research validated the need to offer targeted development opportunities for women to improve capabilities, communication, understanding and sensitivity between genders and cultures” said Rachel Cooke, Chief Operating Officer at Brandon Hall Group. “To grow and achieve their potential personally and professionally, women need support for addressing the unique internal and external obstacles they face.”
Their ongoing research on women leadership programs shows that 70% of companies have a 25% or fewer women in the C-suite. The number one reason holding women back from C-suite roles is a lack of succession management for the leadership pipeline.
