Consider the following stats about women in the workplace:
- When women are in senior executive positions, companies achieve 70% stronger stock price growth.
- Companies with the highest gender diversity see a 10% greater return on equity and 48% higher operating result.
- Having at least 1 woman on a board decreases bankruptcy by 20%.
Gender diversity is so important in business, especially in fields such as IT that tend to be historically male-dominant. That's why AIIM is so proud of its Women In Information Management (WIIM) community.
Since its inception at The AIIM Conference in 2017, the WIIM program's purpose has been to advance women in information management by providing an online community to foster leadership, mentoring, advocacy, networking, industry education, and professional development.
But, don't just take my word for it. On this podcast episode, your host Kevin Craine chats with two WIIM members, Connie Prendergast and Amy Harrelson about the online community, why it's important, and how to get involved.
