Women in Management
Welcome to the CMI Women in Management (WiM)
Women in Management and the Chartered Management Institute, with over 100,000 members combined, presents a powerful alliance to address the key issues affecting women managers today and working to provide opportunities for its members to further develop their potential and life chances.
The theme of our Annual National conference this year was focused on the ‘talent pipeline’, this is absolutely critical to achieving a sustainable solution to the problem of women’s under-representation at senior levels within organisations.
Developing the talent pipeline includes not only increasing the representation of women in management positions, but developing the skills and aspirations of girls at a younger age through mentoring, sponsorship, and attaining qualifications. The focus is on growing diversity, creating more inclusive cultures and future growth industries such as digital and creative which will link to the Management 2.0 themes of the CMI National Conference.
