The commitment to advance women leaders is more critical than ever. Why? Because women leaders are leaving their companies at the highest rate in years! According to the 2022 McKinsey “Women in the Workplace Report,” the primary factors driving women leaders’ decisions to leave include seeking a different culture of work (typically, a more flexible, inclusive, or lifestyle-friendly one), facing greater challenges on their path to advancement than men, being overworked both at work and at home, and feeling underrecognized.
Organizations are running out of time to keep high-performing women at their companies, and they simply can’t afford not to act.
Here at Linkage, a SHRM company, we have been partnering with leading organizations to support the advancement of women leaders for more than three decades. We’re passionate about this work—and we know that the true changemakers are the exceptional leaders who are not only talking the talk but actually walking the walk.
The Women in Leadership Executive Impact Award recognizes executives who have demonstrated a deep commitment to the advancement of women leaders at their organizations, and who have ignited impactful and lasting change for women through their leadership.
Each year, a select group of executives is honored with the prestigious Executive Impact Award—and nominations are now open for the 2023 award. Nominate an extraordinary leader now, ahead of the August 16 deadline.
