Pres­i­dent & CEO Rich Lesser Global Peo­ple Team Leader Matt Krentz As part of its work con­duct­ing re­search into women’s is­sues, this man­age­ment-con­sult­ing firm re­cently ex­plored the need for busi­nesses to fos­ter in­clu­sion, en­gage se­nior women and of­fer paid fam­ily leave. What it found prompted in­ter­nal changes, mo­ti­vat­ing lead­ers to ap­point a direc­tor of diver­sity re­cruit­ing, ed­u­cate man­agers about un­con­scious bias, launch men­tor­ing for women part­ners, and in­crease paid ma­ter­nity leave to 16 weeks. Fe­male con­sul­tants (no doubt pleased by the changes) have dou­bled their pres­ence here since 2011; the em­ployer pays them well and al­lows them to adopt flex­i­ble ca­reer paths, work part-time and take eight-week leaves of ab­sence.
