Our world is changing as is the landscape of executive leadership – sometimes due to changes in law, but also because businesses are seeing that an increase in women as well as individuals from diverse heritage at the management / executive levels make businesses better. The European Parliament and many national assemblies are increasingly voting to urge greater representation of women and people of diverse heritages on corporate boards requesting the EC to ‘draw up a road map setting specific, measurable, appropriate and realistic targets, with a timetable, for the achievement of gender-balanced representation at senior management level.
Research shows that boards with gender balance & increased levels of diversity show dramatically improved numbers on business bottom lines. Boards with a greater mix of women and people of diverse backgrounds contributing openly and equally have a better handle on businesses. Diversely balanced boards – specifically with more women represent the buying market better than male–only boards, making them more in touch with customer preferences. At Accendo Group, we have seen, we have experienced the special capabilities women as well as people from diverse origins and backgrounds bring to the table. We have exceptional experience in sourcing, coaching and mentoring women and leaders of diverse backgrounds for senior roles. We work with each person to bring success to business in corporate and emerging market environments, so that their contribution can be seen where you need it – in more effective teams and on a balance sheet giving you a competitive advantage.
