Announcing: IWL Expands Impact with 1st Annual Brand You Conference in Louisville 



IWL Foundation is proud to announce that we are expanding the IWL Brand You Conference to Louisville on May 21, 2015 at the Downtown Louisville Marriott.


The purpose of this expansion is to bring these same opportunities to new companies and individuals that we believe will benefit greatly from IWL programming. We believe in developing a company's most valuable asset - its people. Every day IWL works to advance women through empowerment, support and connections. This conference is another avenue with which to create more impact for women.


The Louisville Conference will be a community-focused event, with local leaders and sponsoring organizations. The topics discussed will cover issues that are relevant to the business community in both Kentucky and Indiana.


Watch for the May 21st conference registration to open in March.

IWL Blog Spotlight:
The Job Bias Nobody Discusses
by Jennifer Browning Holmes, President & CEO, Integrating Woman Leaders, Inc.

Are Female Leaders Held to Different Standards?


I read an interesting article by Joan C. Williams in a recent issue of the Harvard Business Review titled "Hacking Tech's Diversity Problem," which talks about the challenges Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn and Facebook are having employing female talent.  This summer, all four companies disclosed their "woefully low levels of female employment."


The numbers they shared were surprising to me, considering that women are graduating at higher rates from college and graduate school than men.  However, the article shared some concerning data that appears to demonstrate the problems the tech industry problems is having when trying to recruit women:

  • In 1985, 37% of computer science degrees were awarded to women, compared to only 18% in 2012.
  • 41% of women leave tech companies after 10 years, as opposed to 17% of men.
That said, tech companies today are in an interesting place - they've identified the problem and are working to make improvements, through metric-based approaches rather than the standard "patchwork" we see so often.
