Diversity is a huge part of business. And in today’s global marketplaces, that’s certainly true. I also firmly believe it’s good for business—and women have especially unique contributions to make.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that women tend to be natural collaborators and communicators. For women at all levels of their careers, constantly building your personal network both internally and externally is extremely valuable. Building personal networks helps you to draw on others to augment your own insights and perspectives. This is especially important for leaders because they need experience, perspective and insight.
At the company where I work, we’re committed to supporting women’s professional goals and aspirations. It’s all a part of our overall goal to attract, retain and advance women, which supports our broader commitment to an inclusive and diverse workplace.
