Welcome to the launch of our WOMEN Unlimited blog! As President and CEO of WOMEN Unlimited, Inc. it will be my pleasure to share with you information about how our programs help women throughout your organization become the female business leaders that will drive your organization to new levels of success.
In the weeks and months ahead, you’ll hear about our programs, our upcoming events and the latest facts, figures and findings on how – and why – to develop women leaders. From time to time, you’ll also get first hand insights from female business leaders of leading organizations on how our programs have worked for them and their teams.
Let’s start with the 3 big reasons over 160 of the Fortune 1000 companies partner with us to grow and nurture a diverse pool of talented female leaders – and have for over 18 years.
FIRST – Our programs take a 3-pronged approach of mentoring, education and networking, a proven methodology that develops bottom-line focused female leaders
SECOND – We work collaboratively as corporate partners. Everyone is involved in the development of your talented women business leaders – HR, corporate executives, corporate sponsors and mentors. Result? A unified approach that ensures the skill sets attendees acquire are applicable to your organization, both immediately and for the long-haul.
THIRD—We seek out and welcome input from our corporate partners, our attendees and our alumnae. We use that input to assess the effectiveness of our programs and to ensure our content is current and in sync with the changing requirements of a global environment.
That being said, overwhelming satisfaction has been a trademark of our 18 years involvement in developing female leaders. Take a look at the results of a recent survey.
96% of the corporate partners who participate in WOMEN Unlimited programs continue to enroll participants and mentors and recommend the program to other organizations to develop female leaders.
98% of program participants rate their overall experience with the WOMEN Unlimited programs as extremely valuable and would recommend it to other high potential women
89% of the senior level men and women who are selected to serve as mentors for the LEAD program’s matrix mentoring continue to participate as mentors on an ongoing basis
I’d love for you to take a look at our WOMEN Unlimited website (www.women-unlimited.com) for more details on our programs, the leading corporations that are on-going sponsors, and the results that corporations and attendees are enjoying from their participation.
In the near future we’ll look at new evidence on the importance of developing women talent early in their careers. In the meantime, please post your comments.
