Holding Women Back.

83987560_afb5938b6f I was working with a group today from WICT, an organization whose mission is to develop women leaders who transform the media (specifically cable television) industry.  We were talking about how some people don't support organizations like WICT because they think the gender gap is a thing of the past.

Sadly, not so.  A WICT staffer, Laurie Root, sent me this article from DDI, citing research that shows it's still not a level playing field in the area of leadership development – that women aren't being given the support to develop as leaders in the ways that men are.

Have you experienced this?  And if so, what can you do to change it in your organization?
