Seven Steps to Conscious Inclusion

A Practical Guide to Accelerating More Women Into Leadership
We need more women in leadership. The business case has been broadcast. Some think the problem has been solved. But the data tells us it hasn’t. Past research has pointed out problems with little help identifying solutions. We are stuck in a circular conversation about why we don’t have enough women in leadership.
There has been a great deal of talk, but not enough action. ManpowerGroup wanted to change that. As world of work experts ManpowerGroup have 30,000 employees advising over 400,000 clients every year on hiring decisions and talent development. They wanted to find out from their own workforce and other organizations what can be done to close the gap faster. They wanted to provide practical recommendations that will help organizations reach the tipping point and move closer to Conscious Inclusion.
ManpowerGroup commissioned qualitative research with Reputation Leaders, carrying out in-depth interviews with 222 leaders globally – 72 from ManpowerGroup and 150 other leaders – representing companies with over half a million employees, in 25 countries. We talked to Emerging and Established Leaders, female and male, age 28 – 59, to get views from different levels of the organizations as well as a generational perspective from Millennials, Gen X and Baby Boomers.
This report was reviewed at Davos 2016 by Jonas Prising, CEO of ManpowerGroup and Mara Swan, EVP of ManpowerGroup.
