FROM FIX THE WOMEN…
Many companies would like to be more gender balanced. Some have tried hard, created women’s networks, mentoring programmes and female leadership training. We know, because we used to help them with these efforts. But after a few years, we were forced to admit they didn’t deliver balance. We learned that assuming that today’s imbalance is caused by something women lack (skill, will or background) was part of the problem.
… TO BALANCE THE COMPANY
Instead, for the past decade, we have invited CEOs and their teams to ask ‘What’s wrong with our company if we can’t attract, retain and promote the majority of today’s educated talent and connect with the majority of consumers in an ever-expanding range of sectors?’
IT TAKES LEADERSHIP, LEADERSHIP, LEADERSHIP
20-first supports companies in adapting to global trends in gender, nationality, and generational issues and help leaders become effective at shifting the balance. We start by getting Executive Teams to identify the priorities key to the business – and make sure they are skilled at WHY and HOW to lead the change.
