“Women in tech companies feel like outsiders because they lack role models, networks, and mentors.”
This statement comes from Catalyst, a leading nonprofit research group focused on expanding opportunities for women and business. To address this barrier, Catalyst recommends that tech companies create opportunities for women to network with each other. (Read the full report.)
As an executive at Adobe Systems, I also saw that women needed more opportunities to connect with and learn from each other. To meet this need, I co-founded Adobe’s women’s group. Through my work there and with other groups that focus on the career development of women, I know what tends to concern women, what holds them back from achieving their career goals, and what practical tips resonate with them.
If you want to recruit more women to your company, retain the women you have, and develop powerful female leaders, I can help. With an approach tailored to meet your business objectives, I can review your current practices and identify actionable next steps to attract, retain, and develop your female employees.
