Given the strategic importance of shaping tomorrow's leaders, most global companies have embraced the business case for gender diversity and virtually all have established formal programs and training. Despite these efforts, women remain underrepresented at senior levels, indicating that these programs may not be paying off equally for women and men.
The recent Catalyst report Good Intentions, Imperfect Execution: Women Get Fewer of the "Hot Jobs" Needed to Advance, noticed that large and visible projects, mission-critical roles, and international experiences are the crucial "hot jobs" that advance high potentials further and faster. However, women get fewer of these critical projects necessary to advance.
At this round table, we will discuss key questions such as:
How does your organisation determine who gets the 'hot jobs'?
To what extent can your organization offer highly visible assignments in a more strategic way to prepare high potentials for the next level?
Which development opportunities are intended primarily to develop skills and which are designed to lead to advancement?
This event will be facilitated by Sibylle Rupprecht, Executive Director, Catalyst Europe.
We look forward to seeing you in Geneva!
