Learning Objectives

arrow Catalyst's longitudinal research project, The Promise of Future Leadership: Highly Talented Employees in the Pipeline, investigates the factors impacting the retention and advancement of high potential employees around the world. By surveying MBA graduates—a proxy for high potential employees—from 26 leading business schools in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, we have been systematically uncovering the barriers women face in the pipelinefrom the moment they graduate from school.
arrow After establishing that women experience a gap in both level and compensation from their very first job post-MBA—a gap that only grows over time—we explored potential explanations for this gap including mentoring and sponsorship, career strategies, and leadership development. Insights we have gathered from global leaders help to shine light on these issues and offer examples of how leading organizations are implementing processes to ensure individual talent management decisions are aligned with broader strategies. This webinar will provide you with an opportunity to reflect on why disparities in career advancement persist, and help you to identify ways to effect change in your organization, as well as in your own career.
