Too often, parents feel they have to choose between being a good parent and a fulfilling leadership career. We’re here to change this.
The statistics are clear - being a working parent can have a significant impact on career progression. Studies show that between the ages of 30-40, the gender pay gap increases by more than 10%, and with every child the pay gap increases by a further 3%.
This equates to a huge loss of top talent for business particularly at senior levels.
The Leaders Plus Fellowship is an award-winning development Programme backed by Cambridge Social Ventures and is designed specifically to support parent leaders and their line managers during a critical time when many individuals drop out of leadership careers. It addresses the root cause of the gender pay gap and provides organisations with an opportunity to engage with these issues by partnering with an innovative, award-winning Programme.
Benefits to Your Business
The Leaders Plus Fellowship is not only designed to support individuals in their career progression but also significantly benefits businesses through:
- Retention of top talent by keeping key individuals engaged while they are on parental leave. Our Impact Evaluation showed a third of fellows were promoted during the inaugural programme.
- Targeted intervention for parent leaders and their line managers during a critical time when many drop off the leadership pipeline.
- Increasing gender parity at leadership levels by addressing a root cause of the gender pay gap.
- Creating positive role models and champions within your business committed to driving long-term change.
