Promote from within – Create pathways and upward mobility for women already excelling within your organization. These women are looking for promotions and growth, but oftentimes must leave to get promoted. Change that by providing internal pathways for growth.
Become empathic leaders – Empathy has become the most critical leadership trait. Train leaders at every organizational level and value compassion.
Ensure a flexible environment – Women, and all employees, have figured out how to be productive, better balance life, work without commutes, support their families, and be great employees. The new work world must embrace these new conditions and build cultures that support flexibility.
Embrace remote workers – Studies now show that talent wants to live outside of the coast cities, and employees have proven they can be successful working from anywhere. Find ways to embrace your remote culture, promote talent that is remote, and expect a hybrid world for the future.
Be creative with schedules – A lot of women are looking for part time jobs—a completely underused talent pool. Create part time roles that women and other talent can be a part of to diversify your workforce.
