What does advancement mean, to you?

Determining my next upwards career move.

Promotion into a leadership position.

Greater opportunities on a national/ international level.

Serving on important committees, showing leadership in institutional initiatives, professional societies.

Skills growth and promotion.

Being successful in my new leadership role.

A more strategic decision-making role.

Increased scope, responsibility and influence.


“The traditional advice given to women on how to advance is really failing to advance them.”

- Dr. Caroline Simard, VP of Research and Executive Programs, Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology


The Myth of the Ideal Worker: Does Doing All the Right Things Really Get Women Ahead?

“When women were most proactive in making their achievements visible they advanced further, were more satisfied with their careers, and had greater compensation growth than women who were less focused on calling attention to their successes.

Of all the strategies used by women, making their achievements known – by ensuring their manager/superior was aware of their accomplishments, seeking feedback and credit as appropriate, and asking for a promotion when they felt it was deserved, was the only one associated with compensation growth.”

- Catalyst, 2011


“There is a special kind of relationship—called sponsorship—in which the mentor goes beyond giving feedback and advice and uses his or her influence with senior executives to advocate for the mentee. Our interviews and surveys alike suggest that high-potential women are overmentored and undersponsored relative to their male peers—and that they are not advancing in their organizations.”

- Why Men Still Get More Promotions Than Women, Harvard Business Review



What top 3 factors do you think are most important to advancement in your field?
