Model for Advancing Women

The Center for Women and Business has developed a model to guide companies in efforts to retain and promote talented women. Research consistently points to three prerequisites for increasing the number of women in leadership positions:

 

  • High-Level Leadership Support: From the CEO and Board of Directors who are committed to diversity programs
  • Corporate Culture and Accountability: A workplace with policies and practices that facilitate women's advancement
  • Women’s Professional Development: Robust opportunities to gain skills critical for success
