The Promise of Future Leadership: A Research Program on Highly Talented Employees in the Pipeline
Catalyst's longitudinal project, The Promise of Future Leadership: A Research Program on Highly Talented Employees in the Pipeline, follows the careers of graduates of leading business schools in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. The series includes timely reports on the recruitment, development, advancement, and retention of these so-called high-potential women and men. This ongoing global research study has discredited a number of prevalent myths that suggest the gender gap in corporate leadership exists and persists largely because of women’s choices and actions. Our findings point to the value of addressing the biases inherent in the system, rather than fixing the individuals within it.
