Why Partner?

There’s a difference between hiring women and positioning them for success. There’s a crucial need for resources, support and shared wisdom to offset feelings of isolation in the workplace. Businesswomen thrive in collaborative environments that promote teamwork, mentoring and constructive feedback.

A commitment to gender diversity makes business sense. Companies with greater gender diversity perform better. McKinsey’s research has shown that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to demonstrate superior value creation. (McKinsey and Company. “Closing the Gap. “ Global Banking Practice. September 2018)
