Why It Is Important

By understanding the principles that breed success in both genders – but specifically those that have led to the success of women-designed organizations – corporate leaders can better nurture and support their female employees, and thereby retain some of the brightest and most capable women in business today.

As a former senior executive who has worked for several large corporations and experienced first-hand how unfriendly some corporate policies can be toward ambitious, hard-working and deserving women, Dr. Sasha Galbraith works to help ensure organizations are structured in such a way that both men and women can excel, be productive and contribute to the overall success of a business.

Extensive research shows that corporations with a higher than average proportion of women in senior roles not only achieve higher than average profits, but also experience higher morale, increased productivity, more prudent risk taking, depth in decision, greater purchasing power and better retention rates for women.
