Results-Oriented Solutions that Transform Female Talent
into Empowered, Fearless Leaders
We are hard at work advancing women at work because the statistics are not in our favor.
The pandemic intensified challenges that career women already faced--as mothers, as caregivers, as women of color. More than one in four women are contemplating downshifting their careers or leaving the workforce completely.
The "broken rung" is still holding women back. For every 100 men who are promoted from entry-level to manager, only 87 women are promoted, and only 82 women of color are promoted.
Women remain underrepresented at every level of the workforce, with only one in five holding C-Suite roles.
The Gender Pay Gap is a stubborn, persistent problem. In 2022, women earned about 82 cents for every dollar a man was paid according to the US Census Bureau.
Because inclusive companies are good for humanity and the bottom-line.
Diverse, inclusive teams make more impactful decisions 87% of the time, take less time to make decisions, and deliver 60% better results (Forbes)
Organizations with 30%+ female leaders realize 6% higher net margins (Peterson Institute for International Economics)
Boards with more women have a 36% higher return on equity (Credit Suisse)
"there is no force more powerful than a woman determined to rise."
Our Unique Approach
Wet Cement's innovative insight-to-action applied learning framework helps build collaborative cultures that drive results. We empower women to achieve their potential by focusing on five key pillars that accelerate career growth: Confidence, Communication, Connections, Control, and Courage. Our customized programs are designed for women at all levels in your organization--from the 'fresh out of college' junior staffer to senior leaders, because helping only 'Rising Executive Women' doesn't solve the underlying problems for the future.
Wet Cement's data-driven approach integrates original insights, the latest published research, and 25 years experience supporting women in corporate environments. We build a customized program for your organization based on your team's needs, culture and demographics. Our process:
Develop the mission and vision with senior leadership to realize the inclusive culture you want to create.
Measure the 'health' of your organization through our "Advancement Assessment."
Design and deploy a personalized program informed by those results.
We also have programs designed for the male leaders of your organization, so they can better understand what's holding back the women they manage, gain a clearer sense of how to coach them, and address sensitive topics.
