The results are in!

Our first annual Watermark/CCL "What Women Want" survey, which we conducted earlier this year, reveals some surprising findings about not only what women want in the workplace, but why organizations should want more women.

Our findings show:

• Both women and men have higher job satisfaction when there are more women in the workplace.
• Female bosses are rated as more supportive to career development than male bosses—especially when it comes to women’s leadership development.

These results debunk two common beliefs: that men make better bosses and that women struggle with workplace culture or leadership roles.

We also found that women are hungry for leadership development opportunities, but the opportunities are not readily available. And women report being aware that organizations don’t always offer them fair opportunities, but rather no-win “Glass Cliffs” that could be the downfall of their career.

Join us as Cathleen Clerkin, Ph.D., senior research faculty at the Center for Creative Leadership, shares the results of our ground-breaking research, helps you gauge how your company stacks up – and delivers actionable steps that will ensure your workplace is one where women can grow, thrive and excel in their careers – and boost your bottom line.
