The gender of role models shouldn't matter but it does, that’s according to Lesley Taylor, Senior Vice President Client Strategy, EMEA, at WilsonHCG.
She made the comments in an essay she wrote that was published in Profiles in Diversity Journal after she was selected as a 2019 Woman Worth Watching honoree.
Lesley, who is responsible for driving the delivery of talent solutions across WilsonHCG’s EMEA client base, talked about the presence of women in leadership positions and how the opportunity to network with them is vital to help motivate other women to advance in their careers.
In the guest post, she also calls for more female role models.
"Female role models help to inspire young girls. When they see a woman doing a job in a male-dominated sector, be it technology, law, or manufacturing, it gives them the belief they can do it too. Women need to see if to believe it," Lesley added.
You can read the full essay in the Profiles In Diversity Journal - 2019 Summer Issue Women Worth Watching® Edition.
