According to the U.S. Department of Labor Quick Stats on Women Workers, 2008,
“the largest percentage of employed Asian and white women (46% and 41%, respectively) worked in management, professional, and related occupations.
For both black and Hispanic women, it was sales and office occupations—32% and 33%, respectively.”
When looking at these statistics and your workplace, we explored:
- What are the qualities of women leaders?
- Are there leadership qualities unique to women?
- Do Women face unique challenges as they advance in their organizations?
We will be facilitating a discussion of “Leadership and the Sexes” and two ExecBlueprints(TM), which profile seven successful women. Before coming to the session, please read the Executive Book Summary provided below and select at least one of the thought leaders in the ExecBlueprints and review the 10 Key Questions and Discussions on the last page.
Many Women Employee Resource Groups find peer-networking, specifically mentoring programs, as useful professional development tools, and we are thrilled to be able to share the insight of Martha Artiles, Global Chief Diversity Officer at Manpower, on the power of mentoring with you via our YouTube channel.
