This Episode: Gender Diversity In Leadership – with Rachel Gilfrin

Lucinda is joined by Rachel Gilfrin, a confidence coach and gender diversity specialist, to discuss the ways in which organisations can empower female talent by creating confidence, shifting mindsets and shaping new progression paths in the workplace.

Key Takeaways

  • Women often feel as though they have to behave like someone else in order to be seen as a potential leader, which masks our true selves.
  • In order for us to be confident, we need to have a good understanding of our mindset and the way we deal with situations. In order to express ourselves properly, we need to be confident.
  • Women often feel duty bound to prioritise child care and the new world of home schooling. This cannot help but find itself transferred into the workplace.
  • Organisations could be sitting on a goldmine of untapped talent, but do not know it because they fail to encourage people to speak out and share their views and talents.
