When Intel announced it had achieved gender pay parity across its worldwide workforce earlier this year it was cause for celebration – particularly as the tech industry is perceived to have the largest gender pay gap of any sector.

Elsewhere, unfortunately, the gender pay gap persists – especially in upper management. According to the Pew Research Center's Data on Women Leaders report, only 22% of people on the boards of Fortune 500 companies are women, and only 4.8% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women,

A complimentary Learning Tool from Owen Graduate School of Management, Vanderbilt University

In this accessible learning tool, Kimberly Pace, Professor for the Practice of Communication, at Owen Graduate School of Management, offers practical advice, based on her personal experience and her experience as an educator, to help aspiring women leaders reach their full potential.

She expands on these 6 key action points:

  • Speak up
  • Keep oversharing to a minimum
  • Promote better behaviour
  • Remember your goals
  • Take on feedback
  • Remember to be yourself

Finally, the learning tool encourages you to take Time to Reflect with questions designed to help learners turn theory into practice.


We’re the B-School built for the persistent. The genuine. The professional who knows he or she hasn’t heard it all before-and uses that humility to grow. To learn. To change. Take note of Vanderbilt. We’re building a new type of business leader-together.
