Live discussion: helping female colleagues progress

Women in Leadership – join the community

There are lots of formal schemes to help women move up the career ladder and many assume the ultimate goal is getting to the top of the company. But some women – and men – are put off and intimidated by the thought of joining a formal network, ashamed that their idea of success doesn’t match up.

Often, informal relationships spring up as a result. I’ve interviewed a a number of senior women now, working in a range of different sectors, and almost all of them act as an unofficial mentor to a small clutch of colleagues, usually after being approached in the corridor or in the office kitchen.
