Inclusive organizations and leadership teams are a topic that has dominated the news cycle and become a constant source of conversation. The statistics are clear: Inclusive organizations outperform other organizations and the impact of women leaders is essential to business success. So why are the ratios of women to men in management positions still so off?

In order to answer this question, many organizations have invested in women’s leadership or women’s empowerment programs. These courses seek to unlock participants’ potential, close the gender representation gap, empower their employees, improve the advancement of women in the workplace, and the list goes on.

But what makes for a successful, sustainable program? And why should businesses care about implementing these types of initiatives?
