4 Ways Sponsorship Aligns to Your Business & People Priorities
If you're seeking to comprehend and articulate the relationship dynamics between you and your Black female employees, qualitative and quantitative analyses are essential. Engagement goes beyond an appreciation of the work; it should also inspire proactive measures that benefit your company's interests and reputation. As engagement issues with Black women persist, this approach provides a measurable way to boost your scores.
Despite facing similar struggles as their White counterparts, Black women must also confront issues of racial bias. The Great Exhale™ community was established to address work-related stressors that affect Black women's lives and provide a safe space to discuss coping mechanisms in a peer-group format. While it may seem simple, we stand by the data that having a sense of community positively impacts mental wellness. Our community shares the same objectives as your EAP, providing a safe space to overcome personal and workplace challenges.
Talent Management Strategy
Education alone won't suffice for impactful talent strategy. According to talent professionals, Exposure and Experience are essential components for optimal development. Yet, organizations tend to invest time and money in courses and workshops. Our community takes a different approach by actively engaging in peer and SME interactions to foster learning and growth. We empower our ladies to take control of their professional and personal development, leading to employees who are better equipped to own their professional presence.
Onboarding & Retention
Have you ever considered incorporating talk tracks about investing in the engagement, wellness, and growth of Black women into your company’s Employer Value Proposition? Imagine if your organization made an ongoing commitment to sponsor Black women in The Great Exhale™ as a part of its onboarding program. The positive impact on your attrition rate within the first 90 days would be significant. For existing employees, this would demonstrate your commitment to action and foster a stronger desire to remain with the company and be actively engaged.
