The Women’s Day is just around the corner and you might haven’t stopped yet to think about what it means. The truth is that this day exists to remind everyone that men and women still don’t have the same rights. She’s paid less than he is for the same work. 15.5 million girls will be married in the next 16 years as children. And at current rates it won’t be until 2086 before all rural African girls will be able to receive a secondary education. Much dialogue still is necessary to reach equality, and therefore I have chosen five posts about the need for (most) women in leadership to bring this solution asap. Do not think twice before reading them all:
If half of humanity is women, why only some ones stand out in the business world? Among these, there are the Xerox CEO, PepsiCo and Yahoo!. Brilliant careers, no doubt. More than this, a hope for successful women to be not a privilege, but routine.
Feminist is a person who believes in social, economic and political equality of the sexes. It has nothing to do with being someone who hates men (this is called misandry). Whether male or female, if you claim that the two (and all other) sexes must be respected the same, paid the same and have the same autonomy, so you are a feminist and you can make your company be. Learn four strategies for this.
The dream work environment starts to take shape. More transparency of leaders, more engagement programs for teams, more freedom to migrate and learn and, guess the best part: more women in leadership positions. If you’re curious, you’ll love to know all the trends for 2015 and the coming years.
Currently the world’s largest site for the sale and purchase of goods, also known as the most popular Internet shopping, eBay has taken some initiatives to return women their space in the labor market, bringing more women to the top of the organization. Between 2011 and 2013, the number of leadership positions held by women increased by 30% per year in the company. See how this was possible.
Women have fared better than men in the four critical attributes of leadership: 1) leading by example, 2) transparent communication, 3) admitting mistakes and 4) bringing out the best in others. This is the conclusion the KLCM study with 6,509 respondents in 13 countries on five continents. And what this “female identity” leadership means to all of us who manage a company? Take care of the communication or fade away.
