Building Your Global Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives Through Leveraging Global Women Network Groups
The largest growing economic force in the world isn't China or India, it is women. The earning power of women globally is expected to reach $18 trillion by 2014; a $5 trillion rise for current income, according to World Bank estimates. That is more than twice the estimated 2014 GDP of China and India combined (CNN). Taking a closer look at Latin America, in Chile, for example, the percentage of working women grew from 31% in 2007 to 34% in 2008. In Mexico, the number of working women increased 10% over eight years reaching 35% in 2008. Columbia has the greatest percentage of working women at 40% and Brazil follows closely at 36.6%. For multinational companies, the growing economic power of women would seem an obvious market to capture. But according to a global study by the Boston Consulting Group, women feel at best underserved by companies, and at worst ignored.
How can corporate WNGs bridge this gap and play a larger role on a global level? What opportunities are posed for D&I practitioners as Network/Affinity Resource Groups offer a tremendous value to global companies in building and retaining their workforce, gaining insights into multicultural market trends, identifying new market niches and in many cases strengthen Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives?
Learn what it takes to engage and build your WNGs from a local to a global level. How can Diversity and Inclusion practitioners measure WNG's business impact and thus present results gained on a global platform? Who do you share your results with? How do you utilize your top leadership and have them advocate for you in the spirit of contributing to the company's bottom line? And most importantly of all, how do you continuously stay on top of constant market change while aligning your WNG's goals with the company’s business priorities? Stay relevant, front and center!
