Getting more women into leadership positions can make a significant difference to the bottom line. MSCI found that companies with strong female leadership had higher Return on Equity (ROE) than companies without, as well as a superior price-to-book ratio. DDI found that in companies in the top 20% of financial performance, 37% of their leaders were women, compared with 19% female leaders for companies in the bottom 20%.
But, most companies have a lot of capable women who simply aren’t making it into leadership roles. This is even more surprising given that up to 72% of CEOs are concerned about the paucity of key leadership skills in their organizations.
How can these organizations afford to underutilize a significant percentage of their workforces?
The answer to this dilemma is to grease the pipeline of talent to ensure that organizations are realizing the full potential from their female workforce. In this webinar, Jodi Detjen Managing Partner of Orange Grove Consulting and Co-Author of Skillsoft’s Women in Action series, will reveal:
