Assess your organization’s ability to attract, retain, and advance women.

Just one in five senior leaders is a woman*—and 50% of organizations have no clear strategy to advance women leaders.**

Do you have access to the benchmark data you need to build a successful strategy to identify, develop and promote women leaders? Do you understand the leading indicators of success for women’s leadership?

Don’t wait for a high-performing woman leader to leave your organization or turn down a leadership opportunity before you act to create an environment where gender parity can be achieved.

Many organizations have set goals to increase the number of women leaders in their ranks, but they continue to rely on lagging indicators like retention or promotion rates to inform their strategy. By the time they access this data, the damage is done; women have left the organization—or never joined it to begin with.

Linkage’s Advancing Women Organizational AssessmentTM (AWOA) is a research-backed, diagnostic assessment tool designed to equip organizations with the critical benchmark data and insights they need to develop a comprehensive and meaningful strategy to advance women leaders.

This assessment includes diagnostic questions designed to equip organizations with key data on leading indicators that allow organizations to proactively predict (and positively impact) the advancement of women leaders.

Linkage’s research has identified the four dimensions organizations must address in order to achieve and maintain gender parity, which include Culture, Talent Systems, Executive Action, and Leadership Development for Women. This assessment focuses on these dimensions, which include the leading indicators associated with the advancement of women leaders, to equip organizations with the data they need to identify and act on areas that will have the greatest possible positive impact.

The AWOA is designed for organizations looking to begin, accelerate, or broaden initiatives to advance women leaders, and organizations looking to demonstrate the impact of their strategies to advance women leaders.

Access the data required to begin a critical conversation about advancing women leadersand the expert insight you need to continue it. Each Advancing Women Organizational Assessment includes a two-hour Strategic Debrief Session with an expert Linkage consultant as part of our Advancing Women Leaders Organizational Analysis.
