Talent Development Paper

If the top levels of your organization contain very few women it may not occur to you that your talent management and development programs contribute to the problem. But at a time when the need for top talent is at an all time high, a disproportionately small number of women at the top can be an indicator that your talent development model has a built-in gender bias - and it is hurting - not helping - top talent advance to senior positions.

IWiN Strategy Paper

Champion Initiatives that Work!

If your IWiN is mired in affinity-related activities, it will fail the:

  • Organization because the ROI is low.
  • Volunteer leaders who miss opportunities for important skill development and are associated with low-value activities.
  • Constituent women who don’t receive high-value career-building resources.

By working with Leading Women, IWiNs avoid the risks of “toiling at the fringes” and companies reap the benefits of:

  • Higher ROI to the business.
  • More efficient planning.
  • Embedded learning to support volunteer and constituent advancement.
  • Embedded learning to drive future planning.
