Women are leaving the workforce at much higher rates than men. What is your organization doing to retain them?
Even before the pandemic, women only represented 25% of senior management roles. There were more male CEOs named John… than there were female CEOs.
Any progress that was slowly being gained has been undone by the pandemic, with estimates reporting more than 3 million women leaving the workforce in 2020.
It’s critical that organizations make intentional efforts to invest in the retention and development of talented women leaders.

What past clients are saying
“LeadHerShip was absolutely transformational for me. When I began Harriette’s intensive coaching program, I was holding onto resentment from what had gone wrong in my career, and was extremely unclear on where my path was headed and what I truly wanted. By week 3, I had a major breakthrough – I found the clarity and vision I had been seeking for years. Six weeks of professional development with Harriette allowed me to grow more as a professional than I had in years of searching on my own. If you are a woman who knows she has what it takes, but is having trouble figuring out just how to get there, you need Harriette’s LeadHerShip program. I have found my confidence again, gotten clear on what exactly it is that I want, and have a solid plan on how to get there.”
Director of Marketing
“LeadHERship is 100% worth the time. Ignore the voice that says you don’t have the time during work hours; the value is tenfold the time you take from your workday.”
Director of Human Resources Seaboard Atlantic
“I had the privilege and gift of participating in LeadHERship with Harriette’s profound guidance, strongest of support, and endless wisdom. It’s been transformational to look closely at my own leadHERship; to consider the gap between what it is and what I want it to be; and most of all, to be equipped and empowered to step into all I’m capable of and more. And not alone: throughout, I’ve been part of an amazing cohort of other LeadHERS. Together, we’ve learned, we’ve stretched, we’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve led – in uniquely feminine and powerful ways. I cannot recommend the program or Harriette highly enough. Truly.”
