On Wednesday, February 5, the Research Center for Women in Senior Management (CIMAD) and Great Place to Work (GPTW) presented the findings from the joint research project “Beyond Equity: Complementary Leadership.” This research initiative identified characteristics shared among organizations where women occupy 50% or more of leadership positions, with a focus on exploring the concept of complementary leadership.
Representatives from both organizations attended the event to present the key findings. Antonio Ono, Vice-president of Innovation and Analysis; Dafne Navarro Miranda, Content Coordinator; and Jennifer Amozorrutia Amozorrutia, Director of Innovation, Partnerships, and Research, participated on behalf of GPTW, while IPADE was represented by Eugenio Gómez Alatorre, Director of CIMAD, and Yvette Mucharraz y Cano, Professor of Human Resource Management and CIMAD Advisor.
Professor Mucharraz welcomed guests to the event and congratulated the Mexican public sector for the progress that has been made towards gender equity over the past year, while also emphasizing the need to increase opportunities for female leadership.
Eugenio Gómez Alatorre, Director of CIMAD, noted that in order to encourage organizations to create a diverse and inclusive culture that will help them meet their strategic goals, it is important to establish a clear understanding of the business impacts of developing an inclusive culture.
“At IPADE Business School, we believe that women and men are complementary, both at work and in society,” he said. “CIMAD is dedicated to supporting the creation of an inclusive culture that identifies and promotes female talent.”
Antonio Ono, Vice-president of Innovation and Analysis at GPTW México, emphasized that encouraging diversity of thought, gender, age, origin, and beyond helps facilitate a greater understanding of any challenge, contributing a wealth of different ideas to the search for potential solutions.
