The Leadership Pipeline: Why women don’t advance into senior leadership and what to do about itWed 25 October 17
16:00 - 16:35
Even after 20 years in Silicon Valley, Janice Fraser was baffled by the hundreds of articles and studies that each try to explain why women don't advance into senior leadership at the same rate as men. Drawing upon dozens of these publications, Janice has mapped out the system, in simple boxes and arrows, showing clearly where the leaks are in the leadership pipeline for women, and how we can plug them. Her findings provide a powerful roadmap for men and women who want to do better for themselves and their colleagues. By courageously looking at how people really advance and what holds them back, we can each develop explicit strategies for managing our own careers and understanding how best to support others.
