What is the Gender Inclusion Movement?
The Gender Inclusion Movement propels collaboration in the C-Suite and every other leadership level of the command chain. It proposes that both men and women shift their perspectives on the roles each one plays in leading change:
1. Men need to include more women to participate in higher-level leadership roles.
2. Women need to get prepared to accept or ask for such opportunities.
3. Both men and women need to pay it forward.
Each one has a different way to lead and deliver results. The cooperation of strategy, approach and philosophy can significantly improve profitability, while improving the quality of communication and relationship between genders.
Why Join the Movement?
Because women represent 50% of the population and still are under represented in high level leadership positions in corporations, government and other organizations. It is important that women can achieve recognition, compensation and opportunity the same way men does. Plus there are other reasons:
Financial growth for all:
Research shows companies and boards that have gender inclusion perform better and become more profitable than the ones that don’t have gender diversity, specially in leadership roles. Companies can be more profitable and families can be better off when both men and women can have equal higher-level compensation.
Talent not gender defines a leader:
Preparing both genders to ascend and lead in our challenging and demanding fast paced world is crucial to inspire the young generation. They can then realize that their gifts and inner talents should be guiding them to the path they should pursue in life and career, not their gender.
It is our duty and obligation to evolve as human beings and do the right thing to create an even more moral and ethical society. This evolution calls for higher levels of mutual respect and understanding of each other’s values and contributions. To focus on gender inclusion in leadership embraces this advanced culture.
Celebration of gender:
Women bring to the table unique qualities such as high level of: emotional intelligence, flexibility, and a fresh perspective in life. Differences between genders were created to compliment each other not to divide or exclude each other.
