Future of Business: Developing Executive Diversity

July 7, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

The buzz: “You like tomato and I like tomahto.” (Lyrics: “Let’s Call the Whole Thing off” by George and Ira Gershwin, from the 1937 film Shall We Dance featuring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers]

Many companies pledge to evolve to a diverse workforce from break room to board room. But for female workers seeking work / life balance and executive mentorship, roadblocks remain. And while the “Old Boys’ Club mentality may be (almost) a thing of the past, some women with great leadership potential choose or are forced to drop-out mid-career, leaving mentorship gaps for new leaders.

How close is your company to achieving true and sustainable workforce diversity?
