We are dedicated to growing the pool of global women leaders in organizations around the world. Our mission is to reimagine leadership for modern workplaces and the global, interconnected economies by developing and leveraging women leaders’ talents to their fullest potential.
We also seek to eliminate the gap in leadership and pay worldwide. We believe that having more women in leadership positions has a very positive effect of enhancing female participation in the workforce.
We also intend to affiliate with nonprofit organizations in other countries, who will collaborate with the foundation to provide the core services worldwide and will be licensed to operate under the “TalentNomics” name. To date, it has set up an affiliate organization in India that is called TalentNomics, India.
