Studies have found that women in the public sector have been advancing into leadership roles more easily than in the private sector and the pay gap between men and women in government positions have narrowed considerably over the years. These advancements in gender equality in the public sector space can be highly rewarding for women who work in the public sector, on top of the satisfaction from knowing that they are doing work on behalf of citizens on the local, state or national level. However, women in public sector are expected to perform well in a work environment that is characterized by a variety of challenges. According to a report by Deloitte on “The future of government”, it is stated that “[p]erhaps nowhere is the gap between the public sector and the private sector greater than in workforce management. While much of the private sector has transformed over the past two decades, the public sector, for the most part, has not. Most public sector organizations are still locked into decades-old workforce policies, such as rigid job classifications, lockstep pay, and reliance on seniority as a substitute for capability.”
We have designed this GovWFollowMyLead program specifically to help empower our women in the public sector towards leadership. Please note that separate registration and fee for this Program is required to attend the Program (whether or not you are a member of The Koa Club general community). Registration fee for the 2021 GovWFollowMyLead Program is $650 per person.
Details of the 2021 GovWFollowMyLead program are described below.
The GovWFollowMyLead™ Program is designed to:
- Strengthen the leadership, personal and workplace skills of women in the public sector so they can build the confidence to succeed, gain insights on being effective leaders, managers and team members, and be armed with useful tools to navigate commonplace workplace challenges.
- Equip women in the public sector with strategies to maintain their well-being, especially during these high stress times
- Help women in the public sector establish supportive relationships with other women at work, providing them a safe environment to share best practices and informal advice with each other.
Once you have registered for this GovWFollowMyLead™ Program, you will also be requested to separately sign up as a free Awesome Member to The Koa Club’s general community of women achievers (or you can elect to sign up for the premium Beyond Awesome Membership to The Koa Club at a deeply discounted rate). The Koa Club is a global community of achieving women seeking growth and empowerment in their professional and personal lives and it offers workshops, events and activities that are designed to help its members gain new knowledge and skills so they can be empowered in unexpected ways, not only in relation to their careers, but also practical life skills that are designed to improve the quality of their daily lives.
