Latest Event Aims To Smash Through The Glass Ceiling

Set to challenge the myths surrounding women being held back in their careers, an Emmerson Kitney event held in conjunction with globally-acclaimed people assessment and training organisation, Thomas International next month will look at gender stereotyping and debate whether or not traits actually exist that prevent women from progressing up the career ladder.

Following a recent extensive study into the gender differences when it comes to motivation, intent to succeed in a career, and likelihood of getting a promotion, Thomas International will present its findings to Humber-based businesses, to inform better decision-making, debunk the myths that surround women making it to the top and answer the question: are women leaders actually any different to male leaders?

Emmerson Kitney Recruitment Manager, Nikki Davies comments: “As a leading local recruitment consultancy, we’re keen to help business executives better understand the different traits and value that both male and female leaders in their organisation can bring.  This event is not just for women in business, but for male and female executives across the region that are thinking about the development of their leadership teams”.

Whilst the old stereotypes may still exist, are female leaders more empathetic than male leaders?  Are males really more assertive than their female counterparts?

The free breakfast seminar will be held on 7th November, 9-11am at Cave Castle, South Cave.
