What really happens when women leaders get sponsorship? The answer may surprise you…
Women+ leaders in tech have access to sponsors, at the same rate as their male counterparts.
That isn’t the issue.
It’s that once women have sponsors, what happens next is often very different.
There is also some discrepancies in titles between the genders.
Both become obstacles for women leaders who are looking to walk in their power in rooms and at tables as they aspire to E- and C-Suite roles.
That’s a preview of just one of the findings in new research from Dr. Diana B. Allen, Empowerment Champion and Senior Cyber Security Expert. She is also yet another of my fantastic ELC Strategic Pathways sisters.
I feel like I journeyed with her as she pursued her PhD in Management in Organizational Leadership.
Diana is a voice in my upcoming book Yes Please! 7 Ways to Say I’m Entitled to the C-Suite, and her episode is in two parts. There is also bonus content for TCSP After the Show & Duets—an Apple subscription only.
Catch part one on of her episode of The Culture Soup Podcast on Thursday!
