Empowering Women to Lead

In this issue, businesshealth® spotlights women in the workplace. In particular, we explore the role of women as leaders and their potential for reaching the top. 

Our editorial sets the tone - women have a capacity
for relational development which contributes to their leadership style. 

We hear from women who are successful leaders and from companies whose policies and actions make them
best places for women to work.

We learn about a chronic disease that challenges employers in distinctive ways but is only one of many that can
suddenly derail careers and raise unexpected barriers to advancement and productivity, especially for women. 

Women and Benefits 

As people managers and leaders with responsibility for performance and productively you have an important role to play in supporting and encouraging women in the workplace. So often, we learned that what made the difference for women were their benefits - maternity/ paternity leave, flexible work schedules and accommodations when illness strikes for employees who are ill and for those with caregiving responsibilities.
