Tackling Gender Bias: Don't Waste Top Talent Within Your Organization

1st August 2018 | Ines Wichert

Women face additional barriers for each of the key career accelerators that make up accelerated leadership development programmes.

In this video, Ines Wichert discusses the need for these programmes to be tailored for women and discusses some solutions for putting women on fast track career development paths.

Career-enhancing roles are those that stretch the capabilities and learning of the best employees. Wichert’s research found that these roles account for about ¼ of the difference between women being promoted and not promoted. This is a vital tool to help women overcome the ‘think manager – think male’ bias that can appear in promotion decisions.

This video also looks at the relationship between performance and promotability, the difficulty to become visible in senior decision-making circles and the importance of international assignments in women’s accelerated career paths.
