IWD Research

Our research has highlighted that only a third of managers report that their organisations have mentoring and sponsorship programmes to champion the progression of women and there are only 41% of women in management roles, despite women making up nearly half of the working population.

It’s now time to identify the actions that employers need to take to deliver genuinely diverse and inclusive workplaces. This means adopting a wide-range of good practice approaches such as flexible working, implementing sponsorship and mentoring, supporting and training line managers and removing bias from recruitment and promotion.
