With tremendous global activism for women's equality, there is now, more than ever, a strong momentum to close the gender gap. At Common Impact, we recognize the need for gender parity across all sectors and are consistently working to hone our unique model of social impact to design programs that both engage and develop female leaders at all levels of their careers. It has been proven time and time again that gender-balanced teams deliver better and more sustainable performance and that companies with more gender-balanced leadership teams out-perform those with less.

More and more, leadership development professionals at top companies are recognizing the necessity of providing their top talent with innovative, dynamic opportunities for development – particularly those that take place outside of the classroom.
