Advancing Women Leaders
A new framework to engage and advance women leaders in the workplace
Now is the time for every organization to create and execute a robust and effective strategy to advance women in leadership at all levels. Decades of progress toward gender parity is on the line.
Do you have a strategy to attract, retain and advance women leaders at your organization?
Linkage’s Advancing Women Leaders™ solution is a practical framework that enables organizations to attract, retain, develop and advance women leaders at all levels. It is based on three decades of work with more than a million leaders—and all our solutions are optimized to deliver measurable and lasting impact.
The Advancing Women Leaders Solution is informed by Linkage’s research, which has identified:
- The Inner Critic and 7 Hurdles to advancement that women face in the workplace—as well as the corresponding competencies needed to overcome them
- The four key dimensions organizations must address to achieve and maintain gender parity, which include Culture, Talent Systems, Executive Action and Leadership Development for Women
Linkage’s assessments, programming, and consulting speak directly to these hurdles, competencies and dimensions, and equip organizations with the data and direction they need to make a real impact.
One in four* women are considering downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce altogether due to COVID-19. Now is the time to act to support women leaders.
We empower organizations to take active steps to improve the environment for women and develop and prepare women leaders for advancement.

We offer immersive and transformative leadership development experiences for women across delivery formats and learning styles, including virtual, in-person and hybrid programming. Premier offerings within the Advancing Women Leaders Solution include Digital Academy, Virtual Sessions, Essentials program, and the Women in Leadership Institute.
We offer additional dynamic products and programming to help you develop an entire women in leadership strategy, including coaching for women in leadership, keynote sessions on key women’s leadership topics and consulting services.
