Women: The Growing Demographic

Estimates have it that one billion women are predicted to enter the global workforce (yes, you read that right, ONE BILLION) by 2023-the next decade! What does this mean for business and what are the repercussions for the economy? Strategist, Penny Frohling, in an interview with CNBC, warns that countries that ignore the growing evidence in favor of women in the workplace will quickly get left behind. In short, countries cannot ignore 50% of their talent pool.

Add to this equation that women in the US are receiving more college degrees and graduate with higher grade point averages.

What are the obstacles confronting women that we can tackle in the workplace? The number one obstacle is care giving. It remains one of the top concerns for working women: work-life balance. Women around the world are primary care givers for children, the sick and the elderly. In the US, childcare costs can consume more than 40% of a women's salary. US corporations have learned a lot, but not enough have implemented polices like job-share, flex-time, on-site day care and maternity leave.

This gender variable cannot be ignored and will soon determine how viable an organization is through impacting the bottom line.

What People are saying about Audrey

Audrey Nelson has mastered the art of "capturing the room" while also engaging the participants before they even realize it! Her polished delivery draws you in while also educating, entertaining and improving the communication skills of the audience. Her dynamic seminars will leave a lasting positive improvement on the participants and I highly recommend her, whether your organization is looking to tweak or completely transform its communication style.

With regard to the book, The Gender Communication Handbook: Conquering conversational Collisions between Men and Women,:

Audrey addresses gender differences in a straight-forward and unapologetic manner. She reveals tendencies in gender communication that we all inherently "know" but, to our own detriment, sometimes ignore. The reader becomes conscious of subtle differences in gender communication styles that will hopefully prevent misunderstandings later in business and, more importantly, in life.
