Leadership Program

The Emerging Leader

is a 5-part leadership program designed

to give employers an advantage in

  • retaining high potential female talent,
  • building a gender diverse leadership pipeline,
  • creating a solid succession plan for the future of the organization, and
  • ensuring a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture.

The Time to Invest in Your Female Talent is Now

Women remained significantly outnumbered in entry-level aka “first-rung” management at the beginning of 2020.

For every 100 men promoted to manager, only 85 women were promoted—and this gap was even larger for some women: 58 Black women and 71 Latinas were promoted. As a result,—they held just 38% of manager-level positions, while men held 62 percent.

"There has been slow but steady progress for women in leadership roles, and now the Covid-19 crisis could erase all the gains that have been made."

Employers who say yes to developing their emerging female talent, are saying yes to an increse in retaining their top talent.

Reflecting on her day
