By: Leading Women
Feb. 12, 2010 - PRLog -- Even with a robust diversity plan and a women’s initiative, statistics confirm an ongoing challenge in moving women up in organizations. Research repeatedly points to the same gaps between what most leadership programs teach and what women need to learn in order to advance. To close the gaps Leading Women introduces Self-Managed Solutions™, a proven array of unique resources to help companies overcome common barriers to women’s advancement.

“We take a totally fresh look at topics such as leadership, mentoring and strategic networking,” said Susan Colantuono, chief executive officer and founder of Leading Women. “And while the topics might sound familiar, our approach to each is unique.”

Companies such as AMGEN, GTECH and Pfizer are now successfully supporting their internal women's initiatives with Leading Women’s Self-Managed Solutions™ - including the Leadership Series based on ten to fifteen minute, multi-media modules; Lessons in Leadership™ Book Clubs exclusively focused on enhancing leadership skills; WATCH Leading Women™ which brings the experiences of successful women to the participant through internet content; and ASK Leading Women™ which offers the wisdom of noted authors and executives through audio interviews.

"Pfizer's Groton/New London Women's Leadership Network (WLN) has worked with Leading Women to strongly align the WLN with the organization's diversity and talent management strategies,” said Debra Hanna of Pfizer Global Research and Development. “Leading Women's live and Self-Managed Solutions™ provide exceptional programming, help us reach hundreds of members and engage senior women - all at a reasonable price point.”

“Leading Women's substantive content is making a difference in the careers of our network members and the credibility of the WLN," said Hanna.
