Highest Path provides a unique approach in helping organizations achieve gender balance.
We offer a combination of consulting, training, & facilitation to create opportunities for women's advancement.
Research shows that nearly 60% of current global graduates and 80% of decision making consumers are women. There is also a strong return on investment in an organization that has at least 1 woman on the board of directors. Although women make up much of the new hiring talent, as well as hold the power of the purse string, businesses are slow to recruit , retain and promote women to leadership positions. A lack of buy in from top executives for programs promoting gender balance render those programs ineffective. Our specialty is to help your organization create shared value through properly investing in gender balance.
Our aim is to help your organization learn how to align its values, stakeholders and resources to best support gender balance. We do this through the following steps:
BUILD A CASE
The biggest challenge to balance in most organizations is getting buy-in from the top. Thought-leadership on the reasons why gender balance makes good business sense, as well as strategies on how to implement balance across the organization can help inspire key decision-makers to get behind global initiatives.
Once there is buy-in and proper allocation of resources, we conduct interviews with top managers to understand the current landscape, as well as conduct a confidential briefing session with the CEO to equip them with the understanding, knowledge and language to lead the change across the organization.
To ensure measurable and transformational change, we recommend a complete roll out of the gender initiatives across the organization. We work with key stakeholders to ensure successful roll out and implementation of the programs.
Examples of gender initiatives in your organization might be:
- Gender Balanced Mentoring Programs
- Female Executive Networks
- Gender Balanced Women’s Coalition
- Education & Training
- Workshops & Panels on Gender Balance
- Dialogue Groups & Forums
By creating shared value, we make sure there is measurement built into gender initiatives to capture the success and impact on individuals who have gone through the training as well as the organization as a whole.
Contact Highest Path today to run an assessment on your organization's needs and goals around creating a more gender balanced workplace.
Taking the learning from the dialogue sessions one step further, we offer leadership and management skills training based on our Gender Balanced Leadership framework, to be rolled out to senior and mid-level managers across the organization. This shared learning helps create a cohesive framework shared by all stakeholders, ensuring the implementation and application of the new skills.
