In Nancy Parsons’ eye-opening, dynamic presentation and book, Fresh Insights to END the Glass Ceiling, she reveals stunning new research that sheds new light on why the glass ceiling really exists. She explains why so few women make it to the top, the staggering costs, and provides practical solutions to bring it down swiftly. At the start, she’ll also test audience assumptions about the glass ceiling. Odds are — most people miss the mark on the real reasons behind this phenomenon and that is why today’s solutions are not working.
Despite the many “Women In Leadership” and “Diversity” councils appointed by company executives, little progress has been made in the past 40 years. Nancy points out that, “If we don’t change the current trajectory, it will take another 400 years for women to attain 50 percent of the CEO positions. This is simply unacceptable.”
The good news is, this research-based presentation is not a blame game nor do men executives need to feel uneasy. Rather, they will feel significant relief when they understand what has actually caused this phenomenon, and more importantly, that it is quite fixable.
Nancy uses stories, images, fun quizzes, history, research data, and brainstorming to engage audiences and to help them begin formulating their own action plans to bring the glass ceiling down.
