  27. 27. We need to stop asking “what’s wrong with women that they’re not making it to the top?” and start asking “What’s wrong with companies if they cant retain and promote them?” - Avivah Wittenberg-Cox
  28. 28. What Philips did
  29. 29. Our previous talent management approach mirrored the existing 32 population and tended to maintain the status quo • Composition of talent pools representative of existing population • Candidates not mirrored vs. actual leadership roles • No focused approach to increase diversity by leveraging external candidates Dedicated career support and entitlement to leadership development programs based on pool membership
  30. 30. 33 …our new approach is focused on desired state and helps build leadership and pipeline aligned with business needs Targeted measures to increase inflow that supports desired state long term Personalized interventions prepare successors for future roles Supplement non-diverse succession plans with A-Players
  31. 31. “You are oversensitive. Where’s our #IMD?.” Backlash “””They cant produce the same results working from home…” Flexibility is seen as a potential business risk except for traditional roles and traditional circumstances (i.e. maternity leave ) Entrenched culture of minimising women’s perspectives “I cant see her crawling around a roof space in a hospital with those nails” Need to promote understanding of the business case particularly around skills shortage, war on talent, retention and ageing workforce Women taking our jobs “What happened to best person for the job? Entrenched perceptions around women in leadership and false assumptions around merit
  32. 32. 38% of all hires through in-house executive search are diverse
