Given increased competition and shrinking demand for services, only the firms that adopt new approaches to originating business will thrive. One promising yet rarely used strategy is to proactively support women to generate new business. Currently, female partners are credited with originations at only 50 percent of the numbers men report. Furthermore, only 16 percent of firms have two or more women on the top 10 rainmaker list. This webinar, grounded in the latest research, will help identify the strengths women bring as rainmakers, as well as the challenges they may face. With a focus on not only what to do but on how to do it, leaders will leave with actionable next steps (and a white paper documenting these) they can take to unleash the latent business generation power women can deliver.

Objectives:

  • Identify the reasons the origination gap exists.?

  • Define the benefits the firm will enjoy when the gap is closed.?

  • Review a menu of prescriptive recommendations offered. ?

  • Discuss appropriate metrics to track accountability.?

  • Apply change management principles to engage stakeholders and stage successful implementation.
