The gender gap between men and women in the workplace is well-documented, but achieving gender equity is more complex than we first thought. Women are not a monolithic group, and any attempt to create a blanket solution for women in the workplace is bound to fail. To address this issue, there are key phases of the employee experience where specific support for each woman’s unique needs can springboard their development as leaders.
By supporting women leaders through the employee lifecycle, HR leaders can create a more diverse and inclusive workplace while also improving overall business performance. Coaching can help women leaders develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to thrive in their roles, from entry-level positions to executive leadership. It can also provide a safe space for women to discuss and overcome any barriers they may face.
Take a look at ‘Supporting Women Leaders Through the Employee Lifecycle’ to understand how viewing a women’s experience through the lens of these key phases can help HR leaders take action to close the gender gap for women in the workplace.
