At AWE, we often get requests to help articulate the business case for women’s internal networks that are an important catalyst to advancing women’s leadership. Plenty of data is available that demonstrate the net profit for companies who have at least 30% of women in the C-Suite including the latest research.
While we are happy to help our clients build the business case, what we know at AWE is that policy and practices, such as internal networks for women that provide leadership development, mentoring and safe space to stretch, are critically important for building a leadership pipeline. We also know that there are policies and practices that companies can easily put into place that will help them advance women in leadership.
There comes a time when corporate leadership must draw a line in the sand. Are we a company who wants to talk about gender diversity or a company that demonstrates is strength by ensuring diversity? The difference is all in the profits.
