Women in Leadership

Accelerate and Advance Women Leaders to Ignite Impact

It's not a woman's issue. It's a business issue.

The business case for diversity has never been stronger. According to research from the Global Leadership Forecast by DDI and The Conference Board, high-performing organizations have double the number of women in leadership roles and double the number of high-potential women leaders compared to the bottom 20 percent.

We are passionate towards the cause of advancing women in leadership for our client organizations, and with more than 1,000 employees in 26 countries, we’re proud that women notably comprise 53 percent of our leadership bench.

DDI offers a variety of solutions that align with your organization’s diversity initiatives, and ignite the impact of your women leaders. You can download the brochure for more details.

Audit your Women in Leadership practices

Take an objective look at your HR policies and procedures, and consider if they advance or hinder your ability to select, develop, or promote women in leadership roles. With the Women in Leadership Practices Audit, you can compare and benchmark your practices with over 1,500+ organizations, view how prevalent and impactful your HR and talent practices are, and get a scorecard of which practices most impact your women leaders.
