We all are looking for role models to help guide us through our lives and careers. Yet women in particular often can’t find visible female role models at the top who demonstrate to other women that it is possible for them to get there, too. Catalyst research shows that almost two-thirds of women report a lack of role models as an obstacle to their career advancement.
Men, on the other hand, need to see respected and powerful male executives who dare to challenge the traditional roles women and men play in the workplace and at home. This sort of exposure to courageous role models provides men with important reassurance that they will not lose face and be judged less manly for taking a stand against gender bias.
Join us for a unique opportunity to discuss and understand the impact that role models can have at different points in our careers.
