Christine Griffin will introduce this interactive session by sharing highlights from research she carried out into Women in Leadership in 2015. In particular, challenges many women face as they step up the executive career ladder and ways in which they address them. The objective is to use insights from the research as a springboard to discuss in groups the role HR can play to help organisations achieve a greater gender balance at all levels but especially at executive and board levels.
Discussion groups, led by an expert and facilitated by a branch member, will cover the following 4 topics:
Recruitment and Selection – What role can HR play to help organisations attract a more diverse pool of candidates?
Leadership Development/Succession Planning – What role can HR play to help shape leadership development programmes and succession plans to improve leadership diversity?
Organisational culture – What role can HR play to create an organizational culture to help attract, develop and retain talented female leaders?
Behaviours and Attitudes – What role can HR play to address sexism and unconscious bias to help attract, develop and retain talented female leaders?
