Celebrating #200

Women in Leadership

Coming in Feb: Millenials
We've spent over 17 years networking and sharing wisdom from women executives (and yes, men too) with women from many different industries and career levels. From brand new college grads, women in their first jobs, newly promoted high achievers & veteran female leaders...we have hosted more than 7,000 attendees over the years.

Can you imagine the positive and inspiring effect Women in Leadership (WIL) has made in these valuable lives?

In this issue, we celebrate our landmark 200th Women in Leadership seminar and the inspiration behind it, leading the way for Women in Business way before it was cool!

Susan Hitchcock – Why WIL Matters

From Passion to Purpose to Impact 
by Susan Hitchcock , Founder & Host of WIL

If you’d asked me in 2003 whether the first two hour seminar featuring a leadership speaker and a small group of female participants in TLG's Executive Development Program would have a long term impact, I’d probably have said, “No.”

But ask me now in 2020 in our 17 th year of the WIL series and my answer is an emphatic “Yes!” 
Tino's Corne r- Women Leaders ROCK

Women Leaders Rock
by Tino Mantella President & CEO TLG

President Obama recently said, while giving a speech in Singapore, “If women ran every country in the world there would be a general improvement in living standards and outcomes”.

I tend to agree. Perhaps it’s because we both have two daughters and talented wives or maybe it’s because we have had the opportunity to work with so many gifted women. Believe me, I am not comparing myself to the past President. My only point is that when any man has the honor of being with women in the social and business environment, they quickly figure out that they are different – duh.

Lyn Turknett- Who are Heidi and Howard and Why Does is Matter?
Who are Heidi and Howard and Why Does it Matter?
By Lyn Turknett , Co-founder & Co-chair TLG

Heidi Roizen was a Silicon Valley venture capitalist - one of the first women in a field still dominated by men. In 2000 she was the subject of a business school case. She was confident, competent, and successful.

Confidence does not come so easily to many women. Katy Kay and Claire Shipman wrote a book and an  article for The Atlantic  on women’s pervasive issues with confidence - issues that impact their willingness to negotiate for a higher salary and likely their ability to be seen as leaders. We have found gender-based confidence gaps in our research at TLG. We first analysed our 360 data by gender in 1997.

We found, as have others, that women were rated higher by coworkers on many more dimensions than men, but there was one glaring difference: women were seen as less confident. We have also found that women rate themselves significantly lower on self confidence (a part of our Leadership Character Profile assessment) and on generalized self-efficacy, which measures an individual’s perception of their ability to perform difficult tasks and to cope with challenge. 

As we reflect on the past 17 years and look ahead to 2020, expect to continue to be “inspired, informed and invigorated”.
