Creating a strong pipeline of female leaders is on the agenda for many UK organisations. Research shows that businesses with diverse leadership teams generally outperform their peers financially on a range of performance measures, including higher return on sales, higher operating results and greater stock appreciation.
In Skillsoft’s Women in the Workforce survey, only 1% responded that their organisation is “excellent” at addressing the challenges of the gender gap in leadership. Considering there are more men named John than women leading the UK’s biggest companies, the need for more female leaders in the workforce is undeniable.
Xchanging, a DXC Technology Company, identified a gap in their talent pipeline for female leaders. They implemented Skillsoft’s Women in Action™ leadership programme which consists of “learning templates” including recommended videos, book summaries and full text books and developed a programme targeted at leaders within their organisation.
In this webinar, you’ll find out how Xchanging’s developed a successful female leadership programme. Join us to learn:
