Gender equity in corporate leadership is proven to improve business results, but most employers struggle to hire and retain women for key senior leadership roles. Only 14% have a woman CEO and most organizations have less than 20% women in their C-suites. Most other senior roles for women are in traditional female roles such as HR and marketing. Only one in five employers has a woman in a senior IT or data security role.
Many barriers to improvement exist, but a major one is lack of targeted efforts to recruit and retain women leaders. Whenever there is a pervasive problem, organizations need to take specific targeted actions to correct course. Recruiting leaders need tools to more effectively attract, recruit, hire and engage high-potential women. If organizations create targeted hiring campaigns with meaningful content, social messaging and digital advertising, while also building relationships with groups that help under-served talent communities, significant progress can be made. From there, targeted talent mobility efforts, through coaching, mentoring and executive sponsorships and technology, can position more women for success.
