Webinar: Why Promotion Decisions are Illogical and Probably Illegal
Thursday, August 29 at 12pm MT | 11am PT | 2pm ET
To compete in the war for talent, organizations are reinforcing efforts to identify, grow and promote their internal talent. But unlike hiring practices, these internal decisions made by business leaders are not nearly as scrutinized for accuracy, effectiveness or adverse impact. While women hold nearly half of all entry-level roles, at the first critical promotion to first-line manager, the gender gap widens significantly, leaving only 38% of manager-level roles held by women. The gap widens further up the leadership pipeline, with fewer and fewer women with the experience to be considered for senior-level roles. Succession decisions are largely in the hands of management, hands that have been shown to be laden with unconscious bias, inaccurate judgement and favoritism, and that put their organization at risk for failure and lawsuits.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
The current state of women and diverse groups in leadership positions
How leadership selection and succession decisions are made
How to identify, grow, and promote successful talent and eliminate bias and legal risks
