Advancing Women in the Workplace One Conversation at a Time

Is Your Company Really Committed to Advancing Women?
Prove It! 


Companies often note that their greatest asset is their people. However, too many times there is a gap in that well-intentioned belief and how an organization actually implements strategies that foster a workplace where people can thrive, belong and fully contribute to organizational goals and objectives.

To discover the gap (and close it) requires the courage to be transparent about where your company currently stands in relation to women's leadership advancement. You can't choose to make real changes when you don't acknowledge the problems.

I had the privilege of celebrating International Women’s Day with Deloitte US by participating in a panel discussion on the release of their inaugural Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Transparency ReportThe report goes well beyond women and examines all dimensions of diversity through a lens of intersectionality. This is groundbreaking work that every company needs to examine and then ask themselves the question, “Do we care enough about embracing Diversity and Inclusion to publish our own data for the world to see?” 

Read my LinkedIn article, Is Your Company Really Committed to Advancing Women? Prove It!, and the Deloitte Executive Summary. Discuss the information with your team using the questions below. 

Transparency and tackling the tough challenges is what best-in-class companies do; AND what new entries into the workforce expect.


P.S. As my gift to you, my new six-module virtual series, Creating Gender Advocates, is available for less than $500 (50% off retail price) through March 31st in celebration of Women's History Month. Always included, my two FREE modules for you to kick the tires!

Share with your network:

  • How does your Diversity and Inclusion strategy connect to your company values?
  • What does your workforce representation look like? If you don't have actual numbers, discuss how Deloitte compares to what you believe yours looks like.
