  • Affirm and bolster the business case for diversifying leadership
  • Identify, through robust research, the underlying impediments to the full utilization of the talent spectrum
  • Reveal the mechanisms by which inequities can be addressed
  • Harvest and share best practices across industry sectors.

Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor: The New Way to Fast-Track Your Career

Who’s pulling for you? Who’s got your back? Who’s putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor. If you’re interested in fast-tracking your career, what you need is a sponsor - a senior-level champion who believes in your potential and is willing to advocate for that next raise or promotion. In this powerful yet practical book, economist and thought leader Sylvia Ann Hewlett shows why sponsors are your proven link to success. (9/1/2013, Book - 228 pages, Harvard Business Review Press)

Sponsor Effect: UK

Women enter the white-collar workforce in the UK in far greater numbers than men: 57 females for every 43 males. Yet as employees in large corporations move from entry-level to middle management, and from mid- to senior-level positions, men advance disproportionately. Women comprise almost a quarter (24 percent) of the “marzipan layer,” that talent-rich level right below the icing on the corporate cake. And there they stall out. For all their qualifications, women represent only 4 percent of CEOs and 6.6 percent of executive directors of the FTSE 100. In addition, women currently hold only 22 percent of seats in Parliament, putting the UK 54th among 189 countries with national parliaments. (6/1/2012, Report - 69 pages)
