The Power of Role Models

Thursday 01 May 2014

This is the latest in a series of papers published by CMI and the Women in Management network (WiM) as part of our ongoing drive to promote gender equality at work. In our previous paper, “Tackling the Talent Pipeline”, we explored how managers can better support women in their career development and progression to more senior management roles. Among the issues it highlighted was the need to challenge existing corporate cultures, which are often male-dominated and poorly suited to the needs of a more diverse 21st century workforce.
