hAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!
From: Robert Harte
To: Jacqueline Trovato; Nadia Guilford; Kaela Swanson; Amarria Davis; Kim D Tyndall; SP Vasquez
Cc: Beverly x Chandler; Debora C Finkler
Subject: International Women's Day!
Today is National Women’s Day. Your day! Please know your presence and efforts on the team are each greatly appreciated. Additionally, your work is helping to make more accessible to other women an industry that has up until now been made up of primarily men. For this we applaud you. I invite you to consider the below today as we celebrate International Women’s Day together:
“There is a shortage of women managers and leaders in the security profession, and studies have shown that a more diversified leadership team in companies means more success for the company. We hope to encourage and empower women to strive for leadership roles within the security industry. A 2016 survey of 21,980 publicly traded companies in 91 countries concluded that “the presence of more female leaders in top positions of corporate management correlates with increased profitability of companies. This confirms what study after study for more than a decade have found – that having increased female leadership on your team or board leads to increased financial results.”
Women help create a better work environment; they relate through empathy, communication and appreciation for other points of views. Women are more sensitive and intuitive than men and possess the emotional intelligence needed to create a well-rounded workforce. Women have a greater willingness to communicate and receive feedback contributing to problem solving and risk management. Women improve productivity, adapt better and possess greater purchasing power based on the uniqueness they add to this industry. Women currently account for 85 percent of all purchasing decisions worldwide.
As theBoardlist says in a Medium piece on women in leadership, “Women are full of optimism and positivity. For them the glass is always half full rather than half empty. Women can sense opportunity everywhere. They are focused and strategic and keep their eye on the prize. There is increasing evidence in work environments that women are the creative force for strengthening team dynamics. Having the skill to multi-task, unite people and draw together opinions, optimize the decision-making processes and motivate others to excel and flourish more efficiently. Diversity is the organization of the future.” These benefits cannot be ignored any longer; promote women, make their pay equal and create a better, more profitable company in the process.”

Your brand and presence are key for your success in any industry and they represent what is authentic about your personality and character - reflecting the perception of you held by the external world. By developing behaviors and characteristics that enhance your performance and what you are known for, you will pave the way for new opportunities.
This webinar will teach you the process of deliberately developing your brand, managing your presence, and give you techniques to help you engage with stakeholders while driving change and impacting decisions.
