Equitable Leadership Development Programs

Leadership development programs can be a great tool for helping employees grow and develop their skills.

Yet only a few organizations get the desired results with their leadership development programs.

An HBR study found that a significant reason for stalled progress in leadership representation is the inequitable way leadership development opportunities are allocated in many organizations.

Here’s how you can make your leadership development programs more equitable:

– Identify all the formal and informal leadership development opportunities in your organization.
– Define what qualifies an employee for each of the different opportunities you listed. Your definitions should include clear, measurable evaluation criteria.
– Communicate opportunities to all in a way that makes sense to them.
– Create a formal selection process that encourages fair and transparent comparisons of employees to increase accountability.
