Millennial Women

The talent landscape is rapidly changing. Two talent populations are accounting for increased percentages of today’s graduates and workforce. Two talent populations are capturing both popular media and research attention: Women and Millennials.

Millennial Women

Drawing from interviews with organizational leaders and rising female stars, this ICEDR Special Report provides an actionable framework for talent executives on what young, high flying women value. The framework comes to life through practice case examples.

What Executives Need to Know About Millennial Women

With millennials projected to account for 75% of the workforce by 2025 and women accounting for upwards of 50% of this total, your company's executives are likely increasingly focused on cracking the code of how to attract, advance, and retain next generation women leaders. As a result, we launched an ICEDR research project targeted at helping organizational leaders who aspire to create practices and a culture where millennial women advance. The ICEDR Special Report, What Executives Need to Know about Millennial Women, identifies five key themes that young, high potential women cited as important to what they wanted and needed from their work environments – things that serve to attract, motivate, and retain them in their organizations. Through company practices, stories, and the voices of millennial women and organizational leaders, we'll highlight how companies are embracing the values that young female stars desire: "know me," "challenge me," "connect me," "inspire me," and "unleash me."
