    Context: 

    In our ever-evolving world, the landscape of leadership is changing rapidly. And it is changing significantly across the global development and humanitarian aid industries.

    As an HR leader, you can appreciate how imperative it is to address the challenges women leaders are facing within your organization; those of who are looking to excel in leadership positions but are also facing an array of unique challenges, like:

    • Difficulty in articulating their strengths that inhibit their ability to advocate for themselves
    • Low levels of confidence around the specific expectations of being an excellent leader
    • Feelings of imposter syndrome stemming from outdated beliefs, comparing themselves to others
    • The burdens associated with fears of getting it wrong, doing it imperfectly or needing to prove themselves – all of which can contribute to burnout

    This means that organizations – like yours – are in a watershed moment where it’s never been more important to prioritize how leaders are being supported to proactively respond to burnout, are being intentional about professional development opportunities, and are employing flexible policies that work for employees that need them.

    What to expect:

    Through a highly participatory and interactive session led by Dina Scippa from Enough Labs, HR leaders will walk away with:

    • Understanding of the foundations of emotional intelligence and its connection for their women leaders in managing work-related conflict and stress
    • Practical tools in how to support women leaders to navigate negativity and strategies that support a growth mindset that cultivates confidence and balance within their teams
    • Ideas to start fostering an inclusive space for women’s leadership that capitalize strategic opportunities that enable women on your team to reveal their most confident, innovative and dynamic selves

    By proactively addressing these challenges, HR leaders like you can play a pivotal role in creating workplaces where women feel empowered to lead with confidence. Together, we can collectively drive positive change and unlock the full potential of our organizations.

    Questions?

    Please contact Lauren Eimers, Program Coordinator  info@theWILDnetwork.org.

    Organizations that foster genuinely inclusive cultures not only report significantly higher levels of engagement, trust and career satisfaction from across teams; but also celebrate greater retention rates. All of which are becoming increasingly important when people make decisions of places to work.
