What We Do

 

 

Bring Women into Board Rooms & C-Suites

Highly qualified women are leaving the workforce due to various reasons and are not willing to come back to a full time corporate job which slows down the impact of any inclusive measures taken by corporates and institutions.

Reasons for such departures include:

  • Taking time off for family or moving countries
  • Having to fight for any little bit of flexibility to be able to meet obligations both in the job and at home
  • Getting frustrated with glass ceilings and being passed up for promotions
  • Gender pay gap

What Divershefy is doing to bring women back….

Divershefy creates a network of qualified and experienced women and gives them the tools to update their skills and capabilities. We provide a platform of suitable opportunities at companies as well as a global network of leaders to help with their careers which they may otherwise not have access to.

Enhance Investor Impact

Investor’s stake - The value that gender diversity brings has been quantified through numerous studies, however companies and thereby investors invested in these companies are losing out on this value due to the still low percentage of women at the top. Therefore investors who want to leverage the value of diversity are looking to increase the number of women on the boards and in the senior management of their invested companies. They speak up and use their influence to bring more women in.

Investor’s voice – Investors have a say in their companies. Divershefy provides specific offerings to enable the investors to strengthen their voice at these companies through:

  • Guidelines for gender diversity at companies
  • Strategies to change that companies feel compelled to adopt
  • Research reports and studies on impact of gender diversity

Investor’s tools - Divershefy enables Investors to become powerful drivers of change in the companies by giving them the required tools such as:

  • Providing a pool of qualified and capable women with 20 + years of experience ready to join Boards and C-suites
  • Training and educating the top leadership of the companies on Diversity and Inclusion
  • Conducting Onboarding Workshops for Boards and Executive teams that are choosing to diversify

Sponsoring - Divershefy offers Investors the opportunity to sponsor training programs for women to increase the pool of board-ready women. These programs include:

  • Assessment workshops for women
  • Career counseling
  • Training programs on professional and soft skills
  • Mentoring for women by women already on boards
  • Coaching sessions

Events - Divershefy also provides a platform for the stakeholders to come together in our network. We organize events such as:

  • MEET THE TALENT – at this event we bring together global leaders with professional women, investors and investee company executives
  • INVESTOR MEET - we organize events where investors are introduced to investment opportunities around the globe with a minimum of 30% of women in top leadership.
  • RESPONSIBLE INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP MEET – C-Level Executives, Directors of Diversity & Inclusion, HR VPs and women leaders come together for Panel discussions and Solution workshops on Diversity & Inclusion.

Investors who sign up to be part of Divershefy Network get free access to all events.

Train Companies in D&I

Improved health and financial performance of companies through Gender Diversity

Studies by McKinsey, KPMG, PWC, Grant Thornton, Catalyst and other big names have shown that having more women on boards and executive positions improves financial performance as well as the health of companies. Additionally governance, business culture, decision-making, risk management, creativity and innovation also improve with a more diverse board or executive team. However, the number of women holding these top posts are still low and progress has been slow.

Where are the capable women?

Highly qualified women are leaving the workforce due to various reasons (family, moving countries, glass ceiling, pay gap) and are not willing to come back to a full time corporate job which slows down the impact of any inclusion measures taken by corporates and institutions. Companies need women at the top to guide policies, bring different view points and have role models for younger women to look up to and be supported by.
