CAREER CONFIDENCE AND THE PATH TO LEADERSHIP

are you passionate about gender equality?

We are currently undertaking a new piece of research in association with The University of Glasgow, Capability Jane and Management Today to examine ‘Career confidence and the path to leadership’ and are looking for individuals that are employed in a corporate setting to take part in a short ten minute online survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/mcmweb.

According to the World Economic Forum we are still 108 years away from achieving gender equality. We want to hear from men and women at all levels in organisations to understand what we can all do differently to support our future female talent pipeline. We are aiming for 2,000 responses and would be happy to hear from anyone who is employed (full-time, part-time or on a career break).

MORE ABOUT THE 2019 RESEARCH PROJECT

We have an ambition to survey around 2,000 people and will do this through links to corporate ambassadors and other networks. The research is designed to examine barriers to career progression (both external and personal challenges) and what organisations can do to improve the support it provides employees to enable a healthy pipeline of future leaders. It will also look at the differences between genders and whether or not this has an impact on the route to the top, and what organisations can do differently to support those that want to progress up the career ladder.

We believe in making a bigger social impact where we can and for every completed response we get, we pledge to pay for one day of training for a woman in Africa.
