Tips on How to Support Women in your Organisation

(For corporate businesses) 

This paper explores the 5 invisible forces that shape women in leadership:​

  • The system is stuck: Bias, babies and boys' club

  • Social backlash and double-binds: Women are damned if they do and damned if they don’t

  • Waiting for permission, perfection and a tap on the shoulder

  • Women against women: The enemy within

  • Men don’t feel the effects: How power affects interpretation

    It is a paper without blame and without favour. It seeks to open up perspectives, challenge assumptions, and draw us all in to an active stance on moving the needle forward.

        THE CASE FOR WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

        Companies with more women in senior leadership roles outperform their competition.

          Gender equality is a tricky topic. Organisations and leaders know the conversation is important, but healthy discussion can be mired by political correctness, kneejerk responses or a hesitancy to engage at all.
           
          It’s time to talk about this issue. It’s time to review the data, share the research and encourage robust discussions that lead to real action.

           

          For organisations, there is no denying the benefit of a balanced leadership team. But do we really need to intervene to help women progress or is the current business case enough to pull women through without extra support?

           

          This paper takes a practical look at the forces that shape women's leadership journeys; why things haven't changed as much as we think they have, and what we need to do differently to support and advance more women to reach the top.

              WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF WOMEN

              BRING IN THE DOSH

              Companies with a larger number of senior women produce better financial performance. [1]

              IMPROVED ENGAGEMENT

              11,434 adults surveyed by Gallup showed a 6% higher engagement rate of employees led by females. [2]

              ENHANCED CULTURE

              Women rate higher in overall leadership effectiveness than their male counterparts, with the greatest gap evident at the highest executive levels. [3]

              LIFT THE PACK

              Boards with more women are more ethical (Wood), companies with more women on executive committees bring in more revenue [4], and balancing a team of men with women lifts the collective intelligence of the group [5].

              WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

              As frustrating as it is to acknowledge, the cold hard truth is that women DO need help to progress. It's not because women are broken or lack the skills. Nor is it because men are evil and are holding women back. Not at all. It's because gender inequality is subtle and sometimes invisible. It is embedded in the fabric of our corporate lives, and creeps into our cultures from a multitude of angles and attitudes, making the status quo hard to shake. It's time for action.

              WHAT ACTUAL CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY... 

              “Anneli is one to watch! So far we have had 50 of our high performing women at Mercedes-Benz, from across the business, graduate from the program and the feedback we have received has been incredible. In the space of months, Anneli is able to grow the confidence and/or clout of every single participant to new heights. Anneli’s passion for women and truly inclusive workplaces is real and compelling. She understands that in order to make genuine progress in regards to gender equality, everyone must be included in the conversation regularly. The way she leads such open dialogues (with men and women) on the topic is inspiring to witness and truly, changing the game.”

              -Peter G. 

              "After the masterclass, I have been more conscious of how people are interacting and have been more assertive in asking for what I want. I now work from home once a week, which I was asking for awhile but have now gotten approval. I have also just won an industry award as MD of the year in Recruitment and am now considering new job offers!"
