We Know Next conducted an eye-opening #NextChat discussion on May 23 about "What’s Holding Women Back" with special guest Laurie Ruettimann.
The conversation took many turns as participants exchanged opinions about generational attitudes toward women in the C-suite. They questioned whether organizations with women at the helm had greater workplace flexibility and agreed that moving the needle forward would require more companies to learn how to think outside the “manbox.” Would more senior men sponsor talented women in their organizations if their bonuses depended on it? Or have all the training videos on sexual harassment caused men to keep their distance?
Every organization is responsible for creating inclusive cultures and talent management strategies that identify opportunities to advance women leaders. Those that don’t will ultimately suffer from a mediocre talent pipeline as their star players move on to better opportunities.
