Reaching Gender Diversity: One Step at a Time

Big resolutions or goals can be overwhelming. When I climbed Kilimanjaro, I learned that I could achieve a big goal (the summit) by “chunking it down” into small goals or steps. My big goal is gender diversity in the leadership levels of U.S. business. There is much progress on this climb, but we are far from the summit. Achieving it requires (a) that more women make it to the top and (b) that more businesses create inclusive cultures. Each needs to be broken down into small steps. I suggest “mini” goals for each of these outcomes.
