Why It's Important to Have Women In Leadership
It’s no secret that women have historically faced more significant barriers than men when it comes to fully participating in leadership roles throughout workplaces around the world. 3 Pillars of Leadership uses corporate and social awareness and mindful competencies to help clients empower women to become leaders. Contact us today to learn more and keep reading to discover why it is so vital to have women in positions of leadership.
Role Models for Career Advancement
It's time we all start noticing the power female leaders have in our society today. Women have always been a major influence on younger generations as role models and mentors for children. Using emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and self-management, female leaders are able to create an environment where they can empower other women to challenge the status quo and advance their careers.
Impact on Pay Equity
Women continue to earn less than their male counterparts even in situations where they are more educated or qualified than their peers. Women make up half of society, yet they only make up 20% of CEOs, 22% of board members, 18% of Congress members, and only 4% of Fortune 500 CEOs. This means that not only are women not getting equal pay for equal work but they do not have equal representation when it comes to decision-making at work which impacts their pay equity. 3 Pillars of Leadership is here to help change that.
Influence on Workplace Policies
In order to have more women in leadership roles, we need to change the way we think about gender in general. We need to encourage girls and young women to pursue these roles by showcasing that it is possible and by ensuring they have access to the same opportunities as their male counterparts. This will lead to a more gender-neutral approach to workplace policies and a greater emphasis on equity in the general policy structure.
Diversity in the Workforce
Women have always been an integral part of society, but the importance of generating progress toward women’s involvement in leadership positions cannot be understated. This is an important step to take because it creates a more inclusive and diverse workforce. This will also impact and change current male-dominant perspectives.
