From ‘glass-ceilings’, ‘leaning-in’, ‘Onlys’ to the ‘motherhood gap ’women in senior leadership positions face a number of barriers; gender stereotypes and unconscious bias (Harvey Nash, 2013), structural obstacles such as women being under-mentored and under-sponsored (Harvard Business School, 2010) as well as societal pressures including having to balance career and caregiving responsibilities. Evidence has informed us that diversity in senior management increases organisational performance, despite a clear business case, the proportion of women in key leadership roles remains low in most organisations. As women in senior leadership positions progress further up the management ladder, not only does it get lonely the higher up they go but, women also need a full understanding of how to navigate the dynamics involved. Women executives rarely have an opportunity to come together and share their leadership experiences in a learning environment that has direct relevance and personal impact. Inclusive Boards executive leadership programme has been designed to do just that!
