How to Create More than Just a Crack in the Glass Ceiling – Management Today

Posted by: Alex Linley, as part of Capp’s Female Leaders Month (June 2012)

 

Fresh from celebrating Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, we continue also to celebrate Female Leaders Month at Capp.

 

Do you find yourself continuously apologising, playing mum or not asking for that promotion? These are three common mistakes women make in the workplace, says Nicky Garcea in Management Today

 

“The glass ceiling has a hairline crack, but it is not yet broken. Women remain underrepresented at senior levels and latest research shows us that just 14% of FTSE 100 directorships and 22 percent of senior management positions were held by women. This, despite the fact that in the last year alone, female enterprise contributed over £130bn to our economy.


There are many reasons why female leaders are less represented in businesses, but research points chiefly at organisational bias and actually, perhaps surprisingly, women holding themselves back.


You don’t have to be superwomen to make it to the top, so what are the key challenges facing women?…”

The Queen – 60 years of being a female role model?

Posted by: Alex Linley, as part of Capp’s Female Leaders Month (June 2012)

 

As posted today to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on the Financial Mail Women’s Forum blog from Capp Director, Nicky Garcea:

 

Guardian journalist Kira Cochrane recently wrote that: ‘Young women desperately need role models – and what the media gives them is heiresses, sex objects, surgery addicts and emotional wrecks’. With significant media coverage surrounding the absence of female role models in today’s society, Capp’s Nicky Garcea says it’s surprising that one of the UK’s leading ladies, Queen Elizabeth II, rarely gets a mention as a role model. In her latest blog for FMWF, Nicky suggests that by recognising the strengths of the Queen, aspiring women can find inspiration in her majesty’s reign.

Announcing: Female Leaders Month – June 2012

Posted by: Nicky Garcea and Alex Linley, as part of Capp’s Female Leaders Month (June 2012)

 

We are delighted to announce that throughout June 2012, The Capp Blog will be hosting a series of blogs dedicated to female leaders.

 

Female Leaders Month will begin by marking the Diamond Jubilee, celebrating 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II as a role model of female leadership for women around the world.

 

Throughout the month of June, we will then follow this by posting our blogs on female leadership that have been published by media including Financial Mail, Changeboard and Training Journal.

 

Each blog will give you unique insight into Capp’s approach to developing female leaders and building female talent. We will also be sharing new findings from our research into what women want from their managers, together with tips and techniques for how you can develop yourself and others as female leaders.

 

We hope you enjoy celebrating the successes and aspirations of female leaders with us throughout the month of June.
