Women in leadership roles are just as ambitious as men, but they regularly run into roadblocks that prevent them from moving up. They are more prone to have their judgment or leadership styles questioned or to be mistaken for someone less senior. They are exerting more effort to advance diversity and employee wellbeing, but this is exhausting and largely underappreciated. The importance of working for companies that prioritize flexibility, employee welfare, diversity, equity, and inclusion for women executives is growing (DEI). 

What is the current state of women in leadership and the root cause for it? What additional challenges did women in the workplace face during the pandemic? What are the key leadership styles and competencies required for transformation beyond crisis? What attributes make women better leaders at the workplace? How can we craft and foster more intentional and productive path for women to leadership development? These are just some of the questions that we discuss the answers to in Strengthscape’s Women Leadership: Transformation Beyond Crisis Webinar.  

Key Takeaways

Women are quitting their workplaces in unprecedented numbers as they seek the fulfilment they desire from their professions. Women in positions of leadership have never changed jobs so regularly, and they do it more often than men. It’s possible that this will hurt businesses. Women are already substantially underrepresented in leadership roles. Fewer women have been rising through the ranks for years as a result of the “broken rung” at the entry level of management.

Organizations run the danger of losing the next generation of female leaders in addition to their present female executives if they do nothing to support women in leadership. Young women are much more aspirational and place greater value on working in a fair, encouraging, and inclusive environment. They are ready to follow in the footsteps of older women to adopt their leadership styles, who are leaving for better possibilities.
