Highlight#1 from TCP Live#6 – Promoting Diversity by Goodie Okechukwu 480 480 Margot

Women comprise a large segment of the available managerial talent across the globe, yet their representation at top-level managerial positions is rather obscure. The leadership prospect for women managers is a critical issue in gender equality for businesses looking to succeed in today’s VUCA world. When the question of how to incentivize companies to promote gender equality came up in our latest TCP Live on “ How to Promote Diversity in the Workplace?”, Goodie Okechukwu, Founder of Protect Accent shared the significance of closing the gender pay gap along with making the effort to train women from the very beginning so that they can compete with their male counterparts for top positions later on in their careers. According to McKinsey, companies that have more gender diversity are 21% more likely to experience above-average profitability, and companies with more culturally and ethnically diverse executive teams were 33% more likely to see better-than-average profits. Diversity and inclusion, especially gender inclusion, is a massive benefit for any organization as it positively impacts their bottom line. By not placing an emphasis on gender diversity, companies are actually limiting how much talent is coming into their organization and missing out on different points of view, which come from different life experiences. #Diversity #Inclusion #Leadership
