There is no shortage of qualified women to fill leadership roles: Women make up almost half of the U.S. labor force. They outnumber men in earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees and are nearly on par in getting medical and legal degrees. Yet from corporate boardrooms to Congress, from health-care companies to the courts, from non-profit organizations to universities, men are far more likely than women to rise to the highest paying and most prestigious leadership roles. Our current workplaces don’t always foster the kind of open, inclusive and trusting environment where all voices be heard. It’s a well-known fact that the more voices we have at the table, the richer and more meaningful the dialogue and outcomes. Women’s voices (among others) are often stifled in the workplace hindering their ability to rise in the ranks. Finding your place in the “boys club” of business can be an intimidating endeavor. Whether you’re a seasoned businesswoman, a rookie entrepreneur, or a female leader of any sort, you’re guaranteed to benefit from the support of other women. Join Shaara Roman, founder of The Silverene Group, and author of “The Conscious Workplace” as she shares 10 key strategies for elevating women in the workplace, and how her personal and professional background prepared her for establishing herself and thriving in a male-dominated world.
