Engaging, advancing and retaining women in business
Around the world, a third of organisations have no women in senior positions, and yet research has proven that gender diversity of the workforce is one of the keys to business growth and profitability.
Our research has found that when women have access to both female role models in business, and quality learning and development, they are more engaged with their organisations, advance further into senior positions and are more likely to view their futures with their existing employers. All these factors add up to lower attrition rates and associated costs, better customer and workforce relationships, and, ultimately, bigger profits. This two-pronged model for success is at the heart of what everywoman does.
KAREN & MAX, EVERYWOMAN CO-FOUNDERS
everywoman was founded in 1999 by Maxine Benson MBE and Karen Gill MBE, who recognised the need to change the landscape for women in business.
By setting up a forum for like-minded women to share experiences, opportunities and ideas, they provided a backdrop that enabled confidence and success to grow.
It was through the relationships forged within this community that everywoman was born and it is these diverse communities that continue to be the backbone of the organisation today.
