MyProIQ is proud to announce our newest class edition:

Women and Leadership

Research studies have shown that companies with sustained high representation of women - that is, three or more women board directors in at least four of five years - significantly outperformed those with no women board directors. Statistics like this prove women have the skills to not only take on top leadership positions, but to also have an impressive impact on their organization’s success. Still, we rarely see women in higher positions of power because the reality of the glass ceiling is all too real. There exist a multitude of challenges preventing women from reaching higher level positions; including preconceived notions of a woman’s working ability as it relates to a societal and organizational context and from an internal context - or rather, those self-imposed barriers women place on themselves.

Women and Leadership identifies the specific challenges imposed on women in the workplace and provides an in-depth look at how they can combat these obstacles to maximize their strengths - helping not only women, but all professionals and organizations as they work to build the leadership skills of their employees.
