In this webinar, we’ll walk participants through a decision-making process for selecting a women in leadership program that starts with an outcomes-first mindset. Participants will learn:

  1. Different ways of measuring the impact of their WIL program
  2. Criteria to consider as they decide on the right program for their organization

The Case for Conducting a Gender Audit at Your Organization

Sep 20, 2018, Webinar
Jodi Detjen, Managing Partner and Host

 

While many organizations struggle to achieve gender equity, leaders often don’t know exactly why the inequity exists or where in the pipeline women’s careers falter. For this reason, it is difficult to know how to address the problem efficiently. In Orange Grove Consulting’s audit process, we uncover unconscious bias and barriers in the organization’s systems, processes, and people. We conduct in-depth interviews, surveys, and data analysis to pinpoint impactful opportunities and we provide a gender scorecard as a baseline gender equity measurement for the organization.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

• The value of developing a scorecard before investing in gender-related initiatives.
• How a gender audit provides leaders the increased leverage they need with stakeholders to improve gender balance in their organization.
• How using benchmarks to track outcomes helps leaders get budget approval for change more consistently over time.

Jodi Detjen, Managing Partner

The issue of gender bias often rises to the surface for organizations when it causes an acknowledged exodus of female talent or concerns of liability — or both. But having the conversation about unconscious gender bias isn’t an easy one to have, especially in the workplace. At this event we will bring senior level women and men to the table to have an open and honest conversation about gender bias – and what it means for men, women and the organization. Orange Grove Consulting’s approach – we understand that the environment required to address gender bias needs to be one of mutual advantage – the needs of men, women, and the organization must be considered so all parties can emerge as beneficiaries.

March 27, 2018, Boston, MA
Jodi Detjen, Presenter

Organizations are challenged to develop leaders who can think strategically and solve systemic problems. Yet, women are often thought to be deficient in this area, tending more often to be the “doers” rather than the strategy gurus. How can mid-level women leaders develop this capability? This workshop offers a new model that helps to shape strategic leaders using five perspective shifts that move career women into a more strategic mindset, understand their value, and increase their impact.
