Workshops for Finding & Encouraging Female Talent in the Workplace
A series of workshops created and built around two key factors: encourage & help women to thrive in the workplace. Inspiring Women has teamed up with successful Business entrepreneur Jo Wimble-Groves, who is the co-founder of business communications company Active Digital, to produce and deliver a range of workshops designed specifically with the female employee in mind.
Why are we tackling this subject?
According to a recent KPMG survey, 67% of women said they need more support building confidence to feel like they can be leaders. Women have to redefine confidence and understand that courage will be the main ingredient for success for achieving new goals. Inspiring Women wants to help women to put their hand up and have the confidence and support they need to take their careers and opportunities to the next level.
Why is this good for UK Businesses and L&D Departments?
A study carried in the Washington Post published on on 10th December 2015, stated that a team at research based index and analytics firm, MSCI, looked at 4,200 companies. They found that those with more women at the top had return on equity of 10.1 per cent per year, compared with 7.4 percent for those without. This, in itself proves that organisations with more women at the top creates more profitability for the business overall.
So where are these women and our next generation of leaders?

Businesses need to look within their own organisations for more female talent. A frequently quoted statistic* is that men apply for a job when they meet 60% of the qualifications when women apply only when they meet 100%. So if women we have the right qualities to succeed, is it mainly confidence that is holding us back? Our workshops are about supporting women to believe in themselves and help them deliver great work. We want to address the gender leadership gap –now. If we don’t have the self-confidence to lead, how will we be able to create the next generation of female leaders?
