Elevating Women and Diverse Talent: The One Critical Strategy Most Companies Miss

Wednesday, June 2, 2021

According to a recent McKinsey report, one in four women are now considering leaving the workforce. Meanwhile, diverse employees have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and repeat instances of racial violence this year. Without a clear strategy for the retention and elevation of diverse talent, companies are at risk of backsliding. To tackle these unique challenges, a new-paradigm approach is needed. In this session, Guts & Grace Leadership Founder and CEO LeeAnn Mallorie shares wisdom from more than 15 years of coaching the only woman leader on executive and technical teams. She introduces a training approach based on neuroscience and mindfulness that supports the organic advancement of women and diverse leaders in the workplace and helps to drive stakeholder-centered innovation. In this session you will learn about: - How early-career survival strategies, developed to combat real or perceived workplace discrimination, can hold underrepresented leaders back from advancing successfully to the most senior levels - Why the solution to executive burnout among female and diverse talent must go deeper than wellness and self-care techniques - An integrated training approach that directly and sustainably addresses the root cause of challenges like lack of executive presence, disengagement, tactical versus strategic thinking, low confidence, and burnout
