Analysis: Women leaders add value to orgs
Wednesday - 3/16/2011, 2:13pm EDT
Susan Butler, CEO at the Susan Bulkeley Butler Institute for the Development of Women Leaders, says part of the problem is women are viewed as "short-timers" who will not stay long at an organization.
"We have to get over the mindset that there's a limited number of positions for us because if we're really good and we're really delivering exceptional work and value to the bottom line, there's going to be lots of opportunities to lots of women. We've got to get over this mentality that there's only one or two jobs and I want it," Butler said.
Butler urges organizations to develop more mentoring opportunities for women.
Butler is speaking at the Women in Technology conference on Thursday, entitled "Trailblazers in Women's Leadership: Women Changing the World."
She is also author of Women Count: A Guide to Changing the World.
