Episode 064: Fostering Workplace Diversity Through Inclusion
There is an ROI on both leadership development and talent retention that you may not have given much thought to.
Seeing that you’ve invested heavily into hiring, training, and the professional development of the women in your company, when they stay and grow with your company that can add zeros with commas to the company’s bottom line.
Think of that number for a moment. Drink it in. Swish it around in your mouth to get the full flavor profile.
Here’s another thing to think about… how many women between the ages of 45 and 60 are leaving your company?
How many of them might be leaving because they feel like they were shunned, ridiculed, or dismissed as they navigated their menopause transition?
I can pretty much guarantee that even if you have an exit interview they won’t tell you the truth if they’re leaving for that reason. They’ll tell someone like me, but not you.
Having a #DEI policy that identifies #menopause by name signals to women that you value them at every stage along their personal and professional evolution.
