To empower those who have yet to have the full weight of their voices heard.
In America, only 29% of Senior Leadership positions are held by women*, and the higher up the ladder you go, the less women you will see. For every one company run by a woman, 13 companies are run by men. If first level women were hired and promoted like men, there would be one million more women in management in the next five years.
And despite the growing business case for diversity, companies are still struggling to make meaningful advancements on gender equity and diversity. NASDAQ, says it best:
"[a]t a time when companies are trying to untangle what the next normal will look like, it’s more important than ever before for boards to walk the talk when it comes to diversity and inclusion. One of the most fundamental ways to begin this process is by taking an honest and candid look at the board's current composition, evaluate it, and determine where it needs to be."
If we recognize that women, BIPOC and underrepresented communities deserve the same pathways and access to leadership positions, we must also provide them with the resources and tools for success. At olive hill, we choose to focus our energies in this area to help you unlock and walk through that door. We work collaboratively with other consultants to deepen the bench of consulting services which specialize in unlocking the full potential of individuals and provide transformative leadership for innovative organizations.
