Women in the workplace face numerous challenges moving up the professional ladder, even though they represent half of the labor force in the United States.
Employers who don’t devote resources to women in the workplace are missing a large opportunity to develop their human capital and accelerate growth.
Mentorship in the workplace can sometimes be hard for women to tap into, especially in male-dominated cultures. Women can easily find themselves feeling alone, trying their best to advance their careers, but lacking the knowledge that would empower them to develop professionally and be more effective. This not only impacts women in a negative way, but it ultimately affects the organization’s bottom line.
Mentors can guide female executives and business owners through difficult challenges, as well as coach them on how to best advance in complex environments. However, almost one in five women say they’ve never had a mentor in the workplace. This should be concerning to employers.
