Peoplefluent will also exhibit at a virtual booth.

The number of women in professional and managerial roles has increased notably over the past two decades. Yet it remains commonplace that the same cannot be said for women in the senior executive ranks who continue to be seriously underrepresented. While many organizations value gender diversity in leadership, they target a broader set of diversity objectives that all too often falls short of focused improvement for the advancement of women to senior positions.

During this session, Rania Stewart, Peoplefluent expert in workforce planning, development and analytics, will identify the benefits of placing women in top management positions, including enhanced performance and an increased competitive advantage for growing businesses. Session attendees will learn strategies that are specific to accelerating the development of women but also inclusive of efforts to change the corporate culture to recognize the value of a diverse leadership team. Throughout this session, participants will gain a better understanding of the biggest challenges women face regarding their development as leaders and be able to identify specific intervention actions that can successfully remedy particular advancement challenges seen in the workplace. Each attendee will create the framework for a tailored Strategic Talent Pool plan geared towards making quantifiable progress toward gender diversity goals.

All one-hour webcasts presented during this virtual workshop qualify for HR Certification Institute PHR, SPHR, PFHR recertification credits. Registration and additional information on the IHR Developing Organizational Leadership Capabilities Virtual Workshop can be accessed at
