                    katyanquetilx400x230

We talk about business performance as it relates to client and candidate satisfaction…We talk about metrics, productivity and data integrity.  One thing missing from the conversation, that applies across all recruitment environments and also our clients which has also now proven to drive better business performance is the importance of women in leadership.

Is the conversation a little bit uncomfortable at times?  Yes.  Is it a conversation where we always have all the right answers.  No.  Is it a conversation that needs to be had. Yes.  This is not a conversation about men or women.  This is a conversation about culture and leadership. This is one part my story of answering the “Why not me”” question and one part “why it must be you”.
