  • Sponsorship – the new holy grail for women? : White Water Group
    high positioned sponsor despite 77 of women thinking they ll get there through hard work and long hours alone Meanwhile earlier in 2011 the Harvard Business Review study The Sponsor Effect Breaking Through the Last Glass Ceiling found that sponsorship provides up to 30 more in terms of more stretch assignments promotions and pay rises It also discovered It s easier for men to cultivate more sponsors than women as they men are less constrained by family and home working women do at least 75 of the housework and 56 shoulder at least 75 of the childcare Women benefit from but rarely get sponsor guidance on how to adjust their style work wear and executive presence to look the part of a leader feedback men give readily to other men We ve worked with enough senior women to know that the latter is true When discussing an excellent woman who displays real leadership talent male bosses readily agree she displays all the right skills yet when pushed will say her face just doesn t fit and admit they will inevitably lose her How does this attitude score on the talent waste pipeline And last but not least the HBR study revealed that Valuable professional relationships between an older more powerful male and a younger female are avoided for fear of speculation of an affair most senior men 64 avoid sponsoring junior women for this reason What does this say about men and women in the workplace And while we re all aware that affairs do happen occasionally are they really the norm Or maybe there s a more subtle reason why women don t get senior male sponsors Are men more likely to sponsor people who look like themselves mainly white males This partiality affects not just women but members

  • Up at the O2 : White Water Group
    challenged our fears of heights and our dislike of being caught in deluges We donned less than fetching or water proof jumpsuits to climb the O2 setting off under one of the darkest clouds and through one of the heaviest showers of this great British summer Achieving a slippy ascent we made it to the summit just as the sun came out Now it wasn t Kilimanjaro or the north face of the Eiger but it was our group triumph and we basked in our achievement the view and the fun we had had together I could describe the view but at a different time of day with different weather Wordsworth viewing London said it better than I could Earth has not anything to show more fair Dull would he be of soul who could pass by A sight so touching in its majesty This City now doth like a garment wear The beauty of the morning silent bare Ships towers domes theatres and temples lie Open unto the fields and to the sky All bright and glittering in the smokeless air Never did sun more beautifully steep In his first splendour valley rock or hill Ne er saw I

  • Give girls better role models : White Water Group
    to 21 Gens Y and Z the dominant external female role models were drawn from music and film with Cheryl Cole Emma Watson Adele Nicki Minaj and Jessie J topping their charts Cheryl at number one at 41 I really shouldn t be surprised at this as I was shocked a few years back at discovering that in my 15 year old s daughter s class in an academic school the preferred career option was to marry a footballer or a rock star By the time they reach their teens girls start looking away from their parents to celebrities music and TV shows as influences TOWIE The Only Way is Essex Geordie Shores and Skins being some of the latter widely quoted by the girls Which is scary because these so called reality programmes according to the Guiding Asociation are hugely influential on girls behaviour and that for some programmes such as Geordie Shores and TOWIE are a blueprint of how their lives should look And we re talking being looks obsessed considering plastic surgery career disinterested and with often misguided views on sex and relationships They also believe sportswomen are not as successful as sportsmen And when asked for the names of female politicians the only one they could identify was Margaret Thatcher As a result a trustee of the Guiding Association acknowledges that they re unlikely ever to be engaged by politics And all of this is at a time when their career and education decisions still have to be made The good news is the biggest influence overall on girls is still their mothers at 70 far higher than that of dads sister s other family members teachers and musicians celebrities So mothers much as they have done over previous centuries continue to play important role models
