AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF CORPORATE GENDER STRATEGISTS

INSTEAD OF MAKING PROGRESS,

COMPANIES OFTEN SPEND

TOO MUCH TIME 

ON EFFORTS THAT PRODUCE

LITTLE MORE THAN FATIGUE.

WE HELP COMPANIES
[REALLY]
DO INCLUSION.

In a Meeting

INCLUSION EFFORTS FAIL

WHEN THEY ARE DONE 

IN FITS AND STARTS
AND OFTEN

WITHOUT METRICS.

(i.e. One bias workshop. 
A statement on the website.
A lunch talk by a trailblazing woman leader.
An ad-hoc push by a driven employee. 

A mentorship program via HR.)

WHAT
WORKS:

IN COMPANIES THAT ATTRACT AND RETAIN WOMEN:

  1. THE COMPANY (leadership, HR, Legal) sets and communicates clear targets, tracks progress, and shifts policies, as needed.

  2. MANAGERS visibly advance a fair and welcoming team culture for all, while actively mentoring junior women. 

  3. WOMEN pro-actively drive their careers, support womxn of all kinds, and lead with confidence - while outsmarting biases.

  4. EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS: advocate for company progress; provide a brave/safe space for women + nonbinary folks to connect across race, orientation, and other identities.
