Empowering Women research
Future Talent Strategies: Gender Diversity & Leadership
The first research piece as part of the Empowering Women in the Workplace programme investigates the issues of why women are leaving the workforce, and why women continue to be underrepresented in business at the senior level.
The question is no longer why are women exiting the workforce, but rather, what can employers do to attract and retain talented women in their business.
This research, based on a survey of almost 500 women working in professional disciplines, explores the effectiveness of current strategies to empower and advance women in the workplace, looking at areas such as flexible working, mentoring, leadership and even asking women what constitutes a successful career.
