Advancing Women Leaders in Organizations: A “How To”

Read Post

Susan MacKenty Brady

Lead Strategist, Advancing Women & Inclusion

“Advancing diverse leaders and creating an inclusive culture are not individual efforts; they’re symbiotic. Inclusive leaders develop inclusive cultures—and inclusive cultures foster stronger leaders and teams that drive exponential results.”


Inclusive Organizations Don’t Just Happen—They're Made

Building an inclusive culture requires developing inclusive leadership. Inclusive leaders are courageous and curious and look for new perspectives; they are adaptive to new ways of doing things and build relationships easily. These inclusive leaders create trust by sharing credit and decision-making authority.

There’s a good reason that inclusive leaders foster loyal and productive teams—they leverage their teams’ individual talents and help to build individual strengths while inviting opinions. They help create cultures that embrace diversity, thrive on synergy, and produce exponentially high results.

Inclusive organizations focus on attracting, developing, and advancing women and underrepresented populations by removing roadblocks, gaining stakeholder buy-in, fostering inclusive leaders, uncovering unconscious bias, and developing opportunities for growth.

Create a culture of inclusion to create better results. Learn a proven approach.
