"Senior male leaders still have a long way to go in understanding how to interact, understand, listen, and hire/promote female talent. It also requires a dedicated partnership between men and women, where women work harder at getting men to think differently and men commit to thinking differently. The corporation has to have a real strategy in place as part of its culture to get it right." The New Advantage provides that strategy.
