Supporting Female Leaders
In honour of International Women’s Day, I’m here to give ideas of ways that you can support women in leadership roles.
There can be a number of reasons why there are less women than men in leadership roles.
Data from the House of Commons found that companies led by women outperform those led by men – but despite this, we’re very far from achieving gender parity in the workplace.
I share information about:
Breaking the Bias
Unconscious biases, opinions and beliefs are formed early in our childhood. We learn these from family, friends and people of authority that are social messaging about boys and girls.
Encouraging women to pursue leadership roles and supporting those who are already leaders is beneficial for the workplace as a whole.
Many women don’t apply for specific leadership positions, so work to improve confidence can be really helpful at this level.
When I say this, I mean changing the way that we are speaking up / giving time to be heard / not talking over the top of people; and establishing meeting etiquettes to ensure everyone is treated fairly during meetings, and that all have the opportunity to speak and be heard.
Listen for the story I share about how I had to have conversations about language being used, so I could keep a strong mindset about the work I was doing.
Male Allies and Cheerleaders are hugely important and I talk a little about this too.
These are all important factors in supporting female leaders, so get in touch if you want more info on my services for these, but do listen in to find out how these are different and how they can help support women in leadership.
Pay the same – if you’re not closing the gender pay gap then you’re missing one big thing.
Companies with female leaders perform better than those led by males, House of Commons data has revealed.
