We need more women leaders.

More women to step up and take leadership roles, fill gender-diverse boards and populate the talent pipeline below for the future.

Leadership development initiatives in most organisations support the development of men to the top positions, sustaining the gender leadership gap. Taking a fresh approach, backed by research and evidence, CMTalent provide a range of services to support the development of more women leaders:

Our popular Developing Women Leaders workshop is run on a regular basis as an open-event or can be run in-house.
The purpose of the one-day workshop is to educate and raise awareness of the need to think differently about how we support and develop women leaders.

The workshop covers:

The importance of developing more women leaders

Creating the conditions for women to flourish in their careers

Barriers to more women stepping forward as leaders and ways to address them

Our leadership model and how it can be used to develop more leaders

The workshop is aimed at those involved in leading, managing, supporting, mentoring, coaching and/or networking with women.

Many organisations, professions and industries have created networks to support the development of female talent. These are helpful in giving aspiring leaders inspiring and positive role models, careers guidance, development opportunities and the opportunity to network and build supportive relationships whilst the gender gap is addressed.

We can help you create your own in-house network or collaborate with you in establishing a professional or industry-wide network.

You can book us to speak at an upcoming event.
