Mentoring

Women are making strides in the workplace but the numbers are still stagnating across management and line positions. One of the keys to increased success is offering strong mentoring programs, but many women struggle to find influential supporters who can help navigate organizational power structures. Professional mentoring remains an important strategic tool for companies to attract and retain a diverse workforce and to move talent upward through the management structure. Women and men mentors and sponsors are essential for supporting women’s career advancement whether in corporations, academia, small businesses, philanthropy or the nonprofit sector.

Leading companies are failing to capitalize on the talents of women in the workforce, according to the World Economic Forum’s Corporate Gender Gap Report 2010. It is the first study to cover the world’s largest employers in 20 countries and benchmark them against the gender equality policies that most companies should have in place but are in fact widely missing.

The barriers that continue to prevent women from reaching senior leadership in critical mass in the financial services industry and more generally–negative gender stereotyping, lack of women in line positions, a narrow pipeline, lack of mentoring and promoting opportunities, work/life balance challenges, limited access to powerful professional networks– are the same ones faced over a decade ago.
