Can a company afford to miss out on the untapped leadership potential of their female workforce?
If we look to all of the dismal stats of women in leadership positions, this is exactly what most businesses are doing. It has never made business sense to overlook, undermine, hold-back, not nurture, not encourage women leadership in business, but it's been done.... a lot.
Now, however, the world has changed. Business has changed. The economy has changed.
Perhaps now, we will realise that we can no longer allow this untapped leadership potential to go by unutilised? Maybe now we start to see it as a business imperative rather than a nice to have?
Developing, retaining and sustaining women leadership in your organisation will serve you, your company, your workforce, your stakeholders and the economy.
The time for action was yesterday, and if you missed that, today will work just fine. Just don't miss the opportunity to tap into potential that is lying unutilised in your business.
