In this monthly 'Do's and Don'ts' blog, we share best practices for you to start using as of today. Good luck and let us know how it turns out in your company !
To change the numbers and get to more diversity and inclusion, we need to engage the dominant group. Often those are white men. It is crucial that they advocate for the groups that are not dominant. That can be women, but can also be people from another ethnic background. Or introverts in a company full of extraverted leaders. You get the picture.
Men can take an active role in the journey actively promoting women with leadership potential, just as they do for men. How to get it right? Check out Prof. Mayar's advice below.
Take the next step
What about your organization? How diverse and inclusive are your leadership teams? What about the pipeline? Do you know what is holding women back from the top positions? Are your ready to identify your blocking and accelerating factors?
