Women account for 53% of entry level professional jobs, but only 37% of mid-management, 28% of VP/Senior Management, and 14% of Board and Senior Executive positions in the US. Despite improvements, most organizations fail to retain or promote female talent effectively. HR can play a decisive role in successfully engaging and developing women in the workplace. This session will take a critical look at generational bias, recruitment strategies and talent management practices as she provides new insight and strategies for building a strong pipeline of women leaders. You will learn:

·              How to engage a multigenerational female workforce – Why they don’t all want to “Lean In”

·              How to attract and onboard women for long-term retention

·              The ROI of mentoring, employee resource groups, and other high potential programs

·              What matters when addressing financial security and equal pay

·              Key strategies for building a strong pipeline of female talent
