Aggressive Targets

Measure It… Achieve It!

Do you want a more innovative company? If so, innovation requires growing gender diversity in leadership and that requires setting aggressive targets. It all boils down to the two most significant decisions made every day in every organization:

1. Who to Hire and

2. Who to Develop and Promote

Hiring and promoting purposefully will change the face of leadership and that has the power to grow diversity of leadership AND innovation in every organization. Organizations that have diverse leadership are more innovative. And more innovative organizations have more diverse leadership.

SAP issued a 2017 challenge: 25% female leaders and achieved it. Now their target is 30% for 2020.

Want a more innovative company? Then stop hinting and hoping. Set aggressive targets to hire AND promote more women.
