Human Capital Center Newsletter (US) - March 2019

This month, we celebrate International Women’s Day and honor the women who in every profession and every aspect of life, in every corner of the world, have made and continue to make the world a better place. Be sure to visit Google’s Women In Culture as it is exceptionally well done.

Just in time for this celebration is new research we did in partnership with Korn Ferry about how to address the underrepresentation of women at each phase of the leadership pipeline, from entry level supervisor to the C-suite. With practical advice about what can be done from an organizational perspective, the CHROs and senior HR leaders who participated in the study told us that more attention needs to be paid to the shift from individual contributor to manager and the shift from VP to SVP, as those junctures see the greatest bottlenecks for advancement of women. Providing individual contributors with stretch assignments and VPs with sponsors are a few ways to help bridge these gaps.

And don’t miss the first of the “A Conversation With…” series on March 20 with Dave Ulrich, ranked as the #1 management guru by Business Week, profiled by Fast Company as one of the world’s top 10 creative people in business, a top 5 coach in Forbes, and recognized on Thinkers50 (Hall of Fame) as one of the world’s leading business thinkers. Register here
