Mind the Gap: Why Women Leave – and How to Help Them Stay

Egon Zehnder introduced Leaders & Daughters in March 2015 in London to provide a forum for addressing both the gender divide and the opportunity gap faced by the next generation of women leaders. By bringing together highly accomplished leaders and their daughters and mentees, we addressed the opportunities, challenges, obstacles and ideals of women leaders – and began to pave a path for positive change.

Each year, Leaders & Daughters has grown– from 15 cities in 2016 to more than 40 in 2017. We have convened more than 5,000 attendees, across all major geographies.

In March and April 2018, we will host Leaders & Daughters events in nearly 40 markets worldwide. This year’s theme: Mind the Gap: Why Women Leave – and How to Help Them Stay focuses on women leaders who leave or are pushed out of their careers as they reach senior executive positions. We will explore: Why are women leaving? Do today’s leaders lack the desire to reach the top, or are they being sidelined? Do women today define success differently than their parents?  What can we do to build the pipeline of female leaders?

Timed in celebration of International Women’s Day, we hope that these important conversations will lead to solutions that will create more opportunities for the women leaders of tomorrow.

Mind the Gap: A Global Report

For Leaders & Daughters 2018, we used this year’s theme—Mind The Gap—to look closely at why senior-level women so rarely make it into the C-Suite, and to share examples of success.

To My Daughter

Our To My Daughter campaign, which began in 2017 is a worldwide movement in which fathers, mothers and mentors worldwide write letters of guidance and wisdom to the important young women in their lives. We received more than 110 letters and photos, which can be found at www.leadersanddaughters.com. We hope to make this year even bigger. We encourage you and your friends to join us at #LeadersandDaughters today.

If You Want to Get to the Top, Be an Engineer

As Women’s History Month comes to a close and I reflect on the conversations and specific goals this year’s initiatives supported, I feel an overwhelming sense of urgency to continue the momentum in an area near and dear to me: increasing the presence of women and women leaders in STEM fields.

Filling the Leadership Pipeline with Women

For nearly 40 years, women have outnumbered men in U.S. colleges, but as women move through the workforce, the scales tip in the other direction. Surprisingly, the U.S. market has fallen behind the rest of the world when it comes to gender diversity in the boardroom.
