The challenges faced by women in the workplace are not generic. They are determined by multiple factors including position in the hierarchy, organisational culture, self-beliefs and social constructs. Consequently, Impact take an holistic view of women in the workplace, considering both the individual and the organisation.
Women in management face unique societal, organisational, structural and cultural hurdles. In many ways, the business world is still a male-dominated environment, and this is particularly true the farther up the management ladder one progresses.
Just as it is important to leverage diversity for competitive advantage, it is vital for today’s organisations to identify talent and nurture the personal and professional development of women in the new business world.
Not only is this the ‘right thing to do,’ but a fully engaged, motivated, diverse workforce that includes women in management positions is fundamental to your company’s success.
