Karen and Max WHAT’S NEW Earlier this year we surveyed over 10,000 everywomanNetwork members, all women who want to progress their careers. www.everywoman.com Page 1 COMING UP ON THE EVERYWOMANNETWORK It’s set to be an exciting year and we’ll be sending alerts to our Corporate Partners highlighting what’s coming up each month. Please do share this information with your internal networks. We asked them to tell us which topics they wanted to learn more about. From the feedback, we have created our workbook schedule for this year. Running alongside the workbooks will be a full schedule of webinars and articles, as well as videos and interviews featuring insight and advice from everywomanClub members, all senior level women in business.

ON THE everywoman Network Hello Welcome to UPDATE. Each quarter we share our Partners’ views and activity, the latest thinking around gender diversity, thought provoking articles and the key things happening at everywoman. This quarter we’re delighted to include features showcasing some initiatives our Partner EDF has in place to support the female talent pipeline. If you would like to contribute to future editions of UPDATE we’d love to hear from you, please contact email@example.com. We hope you enjoy this edition. Kind regards Karen and Max During our interviews with inuential women in business they often share challenges that they have turned into positive outcomes but sometimes these stories are too sensitive to share publicaly. We know everywomanNetwork members (junior to mid- level managers) would benet from reading these experiences. That’s why this month we launched ‘everywomanIncognito’ an anonymous column showcasing personal obstacles faced in the workplace and how they’ve been resolved. We’d love to hear from any Partners that have an Incognito story, please get in touch with Rebecca Lewis firstname.lastname@example.org. You can view the rst article here: www.everywoman.com/incognito1 Hundreds of everywomanNetwork members attended last month’s webinar ‘The Skills to Inuence Others & Handle Difcult People’ presented by everywoman expert and executive coach Ros Taylor. During the webinar, Ros outlined the principles of inuencing others, along with her practical tips for making them work. The feedback has been fantastic and many members have told us they learnt tips and techniques that they were going to implement straight away. This was music to our ears as at the beginning of the webinar 66% of attendees stated they wanted more inuence over their colleagues and 22% told us they wanted more inuence over their boss. And, the majority ranked their inuencing skills as poor. Following the webinar, members were encouraged to download the relevant everywomanNetwork workbooks and continue their development in this area - it will be interesting to see how the scores vary later in the year. Finally, this month we want to extend a very warm welcome to our new Partner, Barclays. We were so thrilled to be selected as one of three global diversity partners and it was exciting to launch the everywomanNetwork at Barclays HQ in Canary Wharf, London to an audience across the globe from Sao Paulo to New York to London. The everywomanNetwork is now in over 150 countries and it’s becoming more global every day. WHAT’S NEW

Three 3PLs, one supermarket, two truck manufacturers, two trade associations, and one journalist made for a lively debate at the second Everywoman in Transport & Logistics round table debate last month.
Having a diverse workforce is proven to increase a company’s bottom line, but achieving that diversity in a traditionally male-dominated industry remains a challenge.
