We support leaders who are ready to transform their industries by creating inclusive, performance-oriented cultures in which women are fully engaged and valued.
By designing systems and cultures where all women thrive, we help women to reach their full professional potential and organizations to gain a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining great talent, reimagining markets and building meaningful companies.
The Gender Lenz Team
Our practice incorporates an intersectional approach to gender that is also necessarily inclusive of race, age, sexuality, gender identity, ability and immigrant status. Composite gender demographics obscure the reality that progress is not being made equally for all women. White women, in particular, have benefitted most from gender equity efforts in male-dominated fields. At Gender Lenz we believe in using our access to a seat at the table to amplify the voices of ALL women.
Speak up and be honest. Engage in constructive conflict. Challenge assumptions. Give timely feedback. Reward courageous conversations and risk-taking.
Define success. Plan for impact and assess it. Measure, acknowledge and celebrate progress. Be transparent about accomplishments, shortcomings and lessons learned. Hold yourself and your peers accountable for individual and collective improvement.
Gender Lenz utilizes a participatory model for our strategic services and organizational change management efforts that rely on full, voluntary collaboration, mutual understanding, and shared responsibility.
