Boston, MA - Susan Hodgkinson is a leadership management expert, internationally recognized keynote speaker, and executive coach. Hodgkinson’s new leadership book is: The Dignity Mindset: A Leader’s Guide to Building Gender Equity at Work.
“Leading an inclusive workforce is a leadership competency, not a passing fad,” says Hodgkinson. “Leaders who have not yet immersed themselves in how to think and behave inclusively are headed toward obsolescence.”
The Dignity Mindset offers new, thoughtful, insightful solutions with a system-wide, concrete, actionable set of steps your organization can take right now, with everyone’s involvement, to create a winning approach to gender equity.
Women CEOs in the US are astonishingly rare; as of 2018, only 24 of the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies were women. But Hodgkinson says it’s not about diversity, it’s about gender equity and inclusion. Women comprise over 40 percent of heads of households in the US. Many make it to mid-management, but very few advance beyond that.
If women in the United States received equal pay, poverty for working women would be reduced by half and add $482 billion to the U.S. economy. Eliminating the gap would help everyone finance their retirement and ensure everyone paying into Social Security receives their benefits.
