How do women in leadership impact diversity in the workplace?

Women in leadership roles can significantly influence diversity in the workplace in several ways:

  1. Representation: When women are in leadership roles, they serve as visible evidence that the organisation values diversity. This representation can encourage more women and other underrepresented groups to pursue roles within the organisation, confident that their contributions will be valued and they have opportunities for advancement.
  2. Inclusive policies and practices: Women leaders may be more likely to understand and advocate for the needs and perspectives of diverse employees because of their own experiences as part of an underrepresented group. They can influence the development and implementation of policies that support work-life balance, flexibility, and equitable career progression.
  3. Role models and mentorship: Women leaders can serve as role models, demonstrating that it’s possible for diverse individuals to achieve high levels of success. They can also provide mentorship and support to diverse employees, helping them navigate the professional landscape and develop their careers.
  4. Decision-making and problem-solving: Studies have shown that diverse leadership teams are more innovative and better at problem-solving. Having women in leadership positions thus contributes to this diversity of thought, leading to better decision-making and a more successful organisation overall.
  5. Reduction of bias and stereotypes: The presence of women in leadership can help to challenge and reduce gender stereotypes and biases. This might positively impact the organisation’s culture, making it more accepting of diversity in general.
  6. Attraction and retention of talent: Companies with diverse leadership tend to attract and retain a more diverse workforce. This is partly because diverse talent often looks for signs that they will be welcome, respected, and have opportunities for advancement within a company.
  7. Financial performance: Research has shown that companies with more diverse leadership, including women, often outperform their less diverse counterparts. This may lead to a virtuous cycle where diverse and inclusive companies attract more diverse talent and achieve even greater success.

However, it’s important to remember that having women or any other underrepresented group in leadership is just one part of the puzzle. It’s also crucial to cultivate an inclusive organisational culture where everyone’s voices are heard and valued, and where discriminatory behaviours are not tolerated.

Sarah Jones Leadership Coaching and Women in Leadership

As a former member of the women in leadership fraternity  I have personally overcome many challenges women face as they progress their careers on the path to becoming women in leadership. With over 25 years working in leadership positions within global organisations, I am ideally placed to coach and prepare women for leadership roles.

If you are a woman, who is an aspiring leader of the future, an experienced woman in leadership, or an organisation looking to prepare your female employees for roles in leadership, then please contact me and I will help you achieve your goals.

How have I helped female leaders before?  

Whether in their current, or new, or first leadership role, I’ve helped women to find their voice & influence at a senior level, build confidence & resilience, embrace assertiveness as an asset to their role, and build alliances, overcoming any organisational & structural barriers.

Using proven tools & techniques, we will understand & analyse your behaviours at work, and define areas that we can improve upon. I have access to data that outlines the key global leadership traits that count today if you want to be successful (for example these include listening, empathy, candour, compassion – a wider selection of leadership traits than in the past) & we will develop a plan to build key skills & techniques.

If you suffer from imposter syndrome, and about 70% of executives will do at some point in their career, I can help you – I’ve been through it myself when I was first leading – and I worked three times as hard to prove I wasn’t an imposter. But it does not have to be this way for you, I can guide you through this situation.  

Many women have often told me that they find balancing competing emotions around wanting a career & balancing that with family life & parenting, emotionally & practically challenging – don’t worry, I’ve got your back.

How can I help you?   

I have a range of Women in Leadership coaching programmes that are tailored to the needs of the individual, these will allow us to address together, very specific challenges.

The first part of this process is to discuss your unique set of circumstances to identify areas in which you excel and areas we can improve, though a confidential and free consultation process. At the end of this consultation process I will create a coaching programme, tailored to your specific needs.

Depending on your unique set of circumstances, your tailored coaching programme could be very short and be accomplished in a few coaching sessions. In other cases, more development may be required over a longer period.  

The first step in this process is by booking a free, no obligation call with me.
