Success Factors for Supporting
Gender Diversity in Leadership

Study after study supports that having strong representation of both men and women in leadership within a company leads to improved performance. Yet organizations are stymied about how to support the advancement and retention of women leaders.  Frequently they establish a networking group for women and minorities and then are puzzled why that alone does not change the outcome.

This presentation will outline the key factors that are necessary to make an organization’s initiative effective. It will cover challenges that women and minorities face and how organizations can take practical steps to change the culture leading to improved gender diversity in the leadership pipeline. We will explore ways associations can support these efforts for their membership.

Our Speaker:

Nancy Droesch, Co-Founder of WILLO LLC, will share practical approaches to create a gender inclusive culture.  She brings the same results-oriented skills to her presentations that she used as a partner at Deloitte & Touche LLP where she spent 33 years before co-founding WILLO.

Nancy Droesch launched her career in the early eighties when women were first joining the public accounting profession in equal numbers as their male peers. She was the first woman partner in the St. Louis office of Deloitte. As a partner, she held many leadership roles including Partner in Charge of the Audit practice in St. Louis, Healthcare champion for India integration.  In addition, Ms. Droesch served as Partner in Charge of the Deloitte’s Women’s Initiative in the St. Louis office in its inaugural years. Nancy Droesch co-founded WILLO LLC to pursue her passion to help companies reap the benefits of fostering gender diversity in leadership. Through WILLO, she uses current research and her extensive experience as a trailblazer to promote gender diversity in leadership.
