What we learned from the WoW programme
Programmes to help wowen to advance in their careers
Mentors and sponsors are a winning combination. Together they can help women (and men) who aspire to leadership roles. Even more powerful is the dynamic of having an external mentor and internal sponsor.
Mentors say younger women face significant challenges. Some even went so far as to say that younger women are facing much greater challenges in a cultural context than they did at that point in their career.
We were shocked by how little has changed around corporate culture. Our mentors told us this repeatedly.
Female only leadership programmes matter. Following the WoW programme, the majority (85% mentors and 73% sponsors) were convinced of the need for female-only leadership programmes.
