Putting women's talent in the spotlight

For every 10 men who get their first promotion, only 7 women follow suit, according to a McKinsey study.

Sponsorships are one way to justly represent women in the workplace and reverse this trend. Sponsorship involves leveraging your social capital to advocate on behalf of a colleague.

Although we often talk about the importance of mentorship in career promotions, studies suggest that sponsorship can lead to more women being elevated to managerial positions and beyond.

In this webcast, dive into real stories on how sponsorship has benefitted CPAs across the country. And you'll learn best practices and challenges.
