The Leadership Gender Gap: Strategies for the Career Advancement of Women

Women account for more than 50% of the U.S. Labor force and 60% of college graduates in both the U.S. and Europe. Yet, women hold only 5.0% of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies. Women encounter many barriers to success which limits career advancement. These barriers include unconscious biases, structural obstacles, self-limiting mindsets, work-life balance priorities, and emotional intelligence and gender differences - which lead men and women to approach virtually every aspect of business differently. It’s essential to understand the issues that keep women from advancing as part of your talent management program. Dr. Shawn Andrews will provide strategies to help minimize these barriers and advance your career.

Learning Objectives:
- Explore the scope of the leadership gender gap
- Examine barriers that limit women’s career advancement
- Identify emotional intelligence attributes and their impact on leadership
- Explore how gender differences impact perception and promotion in the workplace
- Apply strategies to advance your career and improve leadership diversity in your organization

    Leslie A. Rubin and Kendra Dahlstrom
    A successful and effective leader is like an athlete- they must continuously train to stay ahead in an ever-changing business climate. Many leaders come with “built-in” skills and behaviors that give them an advantage, while others may need to learn new behaviors just to stay in the race.

    In this session, we’ll discuss what it takes to be a great leader – from a high degree of self-awareness to a stomach for ambiguity, to be an effective communicator, and of course, maintain a positive attitude. These are just a few of the behaviors we’ll uncover that are needed for both the aspiring and current leader to catch and maintain a leadership stride. We’ll also highlight real-life examples of current executives and leaders, and share some key tips to evaluate what’s working and what’s not.

    In this interactive session, you will learn:
    •What it takes to have a leadership mindset.
    •Identifying behaviors that we need to "unpack" or need to evolve.
    •Understand core attributes great leaders must have when they are leading a team, running a company or communicating.
