Leading Women CEO to Present at 2013 TEDxBeaconStreet
Moving beyond advice to lean in, Leading Women CEO, Susan Colantuono, presents new guidance for women who want to break out of middle management and move to the top of their organization.
Continuing the dialogue from Sheryl Sandberg’s TED Talk and recently released book Lean In, Colantuono’s session entitled “Closing the Gender Gap at the Top”, will unveil Leading Women’s research, providing new insights into why more women in business are not reaching executive positions and what must be done to close the gap.
“Our research clearly indicates that corporations are not effectively communicating about and women aren’t aware of 33% of the leadership success equation. This is a crucial reason why women are stuck in middle management. No matter how effectively women follow conventional advice – including to ‘lean in’ – they can not count on it to get them to the top,” states Colantuono. “Leading Women offers corporations who are serious about developing top talent and creating a level playing field the solutions they need to overcome the common barriers to women’s advancement.”
Colantuono has presented nationally and internationally on this topic at conferences including the MASS Conference for Women, W.I.N. Conference (EU), and most recently at the Global Women’s Leadership Summit.
