Helping High-Potential Women From Burning Out

How do employers help high-potential women deal with burnout and, in the process, bolster retention?

True

Helping High-Potential Women From Burning Out

Keeping women in the talent pipeline and holding onto those who made it to the corner office is a gnawing problem for many employers.

Indeed, the rise of women into top management jobs remains stagnant, and while there are many reasons for it, one issue that plagues this group is the struggle with work-life balance and how that impacts career trajectories.

Research shows that some women opt to leave male-dominated fields where overwork is prevalent. So, how do employers help high-potential women deal with burnout and, in the process, bolster retention? We discuss facts about burnout and women, and share best practices for women and employers in DiversityInc Best Practices' Helping High-Potential Women From Burning Out webinar.

Global Challenges of Supporting LGBT Employees Abroad

Global Challenges of Supporting LGBT Employees Abroad

By Eve Tahmincioglu

What’s the state of LGBT rights around the world?

It’s an ever-changing landscape that goes from accepting to hostile depending on the region.

Global employers need to know what’s happening on the ground and how that impacts LGBT employees, or employees looking to take on foreign assignments. And they also need to know how to support LGBT employees and their managers in what can sometimes be harsh environments.

That was the focus of DiversityInc Best Practices’ webinar on Tuesday, June 7, at 2 p.m. ET, titled: Global Challenges of Supporting LGBT Employees Abroad.

We tapped two experts in this area who will share insights on the international issues you need to know about and provide key strategies for supporting companies and employees navigating the LGBT landscape.

The speakers include:

• Andrew Wilson, chief information officer, Accenture (No. 15 on DiversityInc’s 2016 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list, and one of the Top 9 Companies for LGBT Employees)

Wilson — who leads global IT operations and serves at Accenture’s Global LGBT Network Sponsor — will discuss how his firm is navigating this issue, best practices for employers and a case study from one foreign city. (@andrewxwilson)

• Mark Bromley, council chair for The Council for Global Equality (an advocacy coalition of human rights activists, foreign policy experts, LGBT leaders, philanthropist and corporate members focused on supporting LGBT organizations and opposing human rights abuses globally)

Bromley will offer the state of LGBT rights around the world and provide insights on what challenges employees and employers face, details on potential risks in transferring LGBT employees abroad and advice to employers on how to protect and support employees and a company’s reputation.
