Gender Intelligence Accelerates Inclusion
After decades of ineffective quotas, a revolutionary approach to breaking through the glass ceiling for women has come into focus—one shaped by a greater understanding of our gender differences instead of trying to ignore them.
Today, Gender Intelligence is improving communication between men and women in organizations around the globe. It’s resulting in superior innovative thinking, more effective problem solving and decision-making, greater team productivity, and more enduring customer relationships.
How our clients describe Gender Intelligence:
“Our ability to have straight-forward conversations and create win/win relationships between men and women is a lasting breakthrough.”
“It has made us far more effective in how we communicate and lead teams.”
“We have created breakthrough results in productivity, sales, and customer satisfaction.”
“Gender Intelligence has deeply transformed our culture and eliminated biases and barriers to advancing women and men of all diversities.”
For over thirty years, our mission has been to create gender aware, organizational cultures that understand, value, and engage the unique abilities inherent within each individual. Our objectives are:
To ensure that our clients are perceived as employers of choice for women, men, and all diversities.
To empower organizations to advance women and men together and gain the economic value of difference thinking and shared leadership.
To create cultures which embrace gender and cultural differences, and enable everyone to find professional and personal success.
