The Pearls is the only business-led programme which seeks to fix the leaking pipeline of female talent by providing career support and direction for women in middle through to executive management through a programme of events, networking and on-line resources…
Currently uniting over 1,200 women from 48 global organisations and covering 22 sectors of business, The Pearls Programme delivers a sustainable and progressive approach to strengthening the talent pipeline and achieving a better balanced business and culture throughout an organisation.
Typically, organisations have been working to implement solutions to break down the perceived barriers that have been seen as holding women back; such as flexibility, unconscious bias, mentoring, sponsorship and maternity/paternity.
However, our research identified that on top of these organisational obstacles, there were three areas of concern for women themselves, compared to their male counterparts, that could potentially be having an impact on their career progression and needed addressing.
Delivered through a combination of events, networking and online support, The Pearls Programme concentrates on addressing the three fundamental areas which our research has shown are key to resolving the leaking female talent pipeline:
and self belief
In developing these areas, it helps to provide women with better Choice and Control over their chose careers.
According to the OnePoll Survey (2013)
92% of British women suffer from confidence issue
49% felt they would be further in their career
if they were ‘freed of their self-doubt‘
