This paper is part of a series published by CMI and the Women in Management network (WiM) as part of
their ongoing drive to promote gender equality at work. It builds on the earlier report Women in management: tackling the talent pipeline, which explored the barriers faced by women in advancing their careers in UK organisations, by looking specifically at how having senior female role models can help inspire more women to make the move into senior management roles. It draws on the results of research with over 1,000 UK managers and an event held in March 2014 where the speakers and participants described their own experiences. It includes practical insights and tips, recommendations; and an employer case study of Citi.
