Companies with more women in leadership roles are more profitable. Research indicates that organizations with 30% female leaders have 6% higher net margin.* Yet, female representation continues to be a challenge for most companies. Coaching paired with training is an equalizer to close the leadership gender gap but is seldom accessible to women at the early to mid-career stage.
