Evidence exists to show that diversity in the workplace leads to more creative thinking and better business outcomes. Teams are most effective when the gender balance is close to 50/50. Girls often outperform boys at school and many more now have the chance to go to university and gain qualifications. So, the question arises: why do fewer women rise to senior roles in most cultures?

This training course is designed to help employees recognize existing challenges for women in the workplace. How should women address career progression? How can they enhance their presence and gain confidence to enable them to break through glass ceilings? We will explore differences across sectors and in different cultures and seek to give women the opportunity to practice new skills in a safe environment.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand why people work and how work is changing
  • Recognize the value of different leadership styles
  • Develop skills for career progression
  • Practice skills for greater personal presence
  • Understand the challenges of work life balance
