PODCAST: The Road to Gender Diversity in Leadership

The gender gap in leadership has been widely recognised in recent years, with many organisations calling out for gender equality, including The European institute for Gender Equality and Gender at Work alongside others contributing to the promotion of gender equality.

Annual events such as International Women’s Day held on 8th March continue to drive global support for women and bring change. This day recognises the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.

For businesses, this means building an inclusive workplace that supports more diversity at the top of their organisation, and which is an approach ManpowerGroup are actively committed to.  As a result of this, women make up nearly 65% of the global ManpowerGroup workforce and hold 59% of all management positions and 39% of senior leadership roles globally.

In this episode of our Transform Talent podcast series, we are taking the UN’s theme for 2022 International Women’s Day, #BreaktheBias, to explore the road to gender diversity in leadership.

Hear more from both Dr. Syneathia LaGrant, VP of Global Learning and Development, and Laura D’Amico, Head of Learnability and Development Europe, as they discuss how ManpowerGroup is actively setting gender goals for our leadership teams as a part of our ESG agenda.  Our guests also touch upon talent sustainability, belonging, and succession at ManpowerGroup, putting a spotlight on our Future Leader Programme in Europe.
