Breaking the Glass Ceiling
In August 2010 Lord Davies was tasked by the government to lead a review into how obstacles can be removed to allow more women to reach Board level positions in organisations. The review recommended that UK listed companies in the FTSE 100 should be aiming for a minimum of 25% female board member representation by 2015.
Recent research by Cranfield School of Management shows that of the FTSE 250 companies, over half did not have any women in their board rooms and only 5.5% of executive directors of FTSE 100 companies were female!
Evidence shows that businesses with more diverse workforces are stronger performers, better at supporting individual needs, and more attuned to their customer base and stakeholders.
To date there are a large number of forward thinking companies that have put in place programmes to address Lord Davies recommendations…Tesco, Santander, E.O.N, HSBC and the Co-operative group to name but a handful.
So it is with this in mind that we have designed our new 6 day programme, ‘Breaking the glass ceiling’, designed for forward thinking organisations who want to improve their results by recognising and developing their female talent pool.
The programme has been specifically designed to develop confidence and improve leadership skills for women who are taking their first steps into their leadership career through to senior executives and those thinking of returning to work after a career break.
