Empowering and retaining the next generation of female leaders
According to multiple studies conducted by McKinsey, Credit Suisse, Grant Thornton, Harvard Business Review, RSA and the like, there are many benefits for companies who have more women in senior positions.
To name a few:
- Increased profits
- Better overall performance
- Better boardroom conversations
- Improved company reputation
One report (read it here) even makes an important point about the value of having an organic “pipeline” of female managers throughout an organization, as opposed to simply installing a female CEO at the top.
But if that’s the case, why aren’t there more women in these organisations willing to be the next generation of their female leaders?
There certainly isn’t one simple reason but a few recurring factors seem to be that women:
- lack female role models in senior positions (i.e. female leaders who behave as women, not as men)
- don’t like “politics”
- don’t know how to promote themselves
- often undervalue their worth
- tend to put their needs/wants after the needs/wants of others
- find it difficult to manage their time with all conflicting priorities they have in their career and personal life
- think they have to be perfect in everything,
