Introduction to the course

Despite some progress, women are still under-represented in leadership positions. Unspoken rules and arrangements, work practices, and cultural norms govern workplace structures and gender dynamics. They have the potential to limit women's career opportunities and undermine their experience at the workplace. The problem is especially acute for women line managers, who play a crucial role in business operations on a daily basis as the leaders of their teams and as a liaison between staff and upper management. More often than not, it is at that level of their career that women get stuck, discouraged, or disempowered to climb the corporate ladder. In a business world defined by complexity, disruption, and change, today's most successful enterprises are those that bring diverse perspectives and experiences to each new challenge. Along with being the right thing to do, empowering women offers a strategic advantage, especially at the management and leadership levels.

Who attends this course?

Women line managers in companies, institutions and business organizations. Malkia is an orientation, learning and coaching package best suited for managers having team responsibilities. Women line managers from all regions of the world can benefit from Malkia.
