Developing your organization’s female leadership talent is not a passing trend and is not just about diversity and inclusion. It’s a business imperative. Those companies that have a strategy for developing emerging women leaders will position themselves for both short-term and long-term competitive advantage.
“Companies with higher numbers of women at senior levels are also companies with better organizational and financial performance,” according to the McKinsey Women Matter study.
Consider a few of these educational and workforce facts:
- Women comprise more than half of the total US workforce, and there are over 1 billion women in the global workforce.
- Women hold 50% of management–level positions within Fortune 500 companies.
- Women have represented 57% of enrollments at American colleges since 2000, according to the American Council on Education.
Your organization likely has a significant number of women in its ranks. This will continue to increase as more women graduate college and enter the workforce. These women will create a significant pool of leadership talent, and this talent must be recognized, retained, and cultivated.

“We invited Amy to conduct a class for our employee networking group, to empower women in their careers and to provide them with tips and tricks to excel while learning what pitfalls to avoid in the workplace. Amy was fantastic! She brought a lot of energy, professionalism and enthusiasm to her training. She truly had a knack for engaging participants in meaningful dialogue that not only raised issues we face as women, but also got participants to present possible solutions for one another in class. We can’t wait to bring her back for more events and want to say . . . we feel lucky to have found you!”
