We have a problem

“Companies risk losing women in leadership—and future women leaders—and unwinding years of painstaking progress toward gender diversity.”

– McKinsey, 2021

We believe that an effective approach to addressing this is to boost individual support for women in ways tailored to their needs:

“Tailored support for women can include mentoring, coaching and networking programs and senior-level sponsorship, as well as higher visibility of successful role models.”

– Closing the Gender Gaps: Advancing Women in Corporate America, Goldman Sachs, 2018
