Organizations that maximize the potential of these women will have a competitive, sustainable advantage in the future. Successful organizations recognize that a diverse leadership team brings creative and innovative ideas to an increasingly competitive global marketplace. By developing women's leadership skills, organizations can capitalize on this untapped talent group to create the next generation of successful business leaders.
