The PROFESSIONAL WOMEN’S Network (PWN) London is proud to announce the appointment of Greg Young, as Vice President for Balanced Leadership of the UK city network of PWN Global. PWN works to accelerate gender balanced leadership in business & society through hundreds of events and activities which promote professional development and international, cross industry, online and in-person networking.
In addition to being an experienced board level coach and facilitator, Greg is CEO of LeaderShape Global, a UK Headquartered leadership development organisation that specialises in developing transpersonal leaders and organisations that are fit for the 21st century. A passion for Greg is working with women leaders, preparing them for higher office frequently in male dominated environments. He is a published author on developing women leaders and is a speaker at international events.
Greg says his vision of women’s leadership in the 21st century is to: “Foster & nurture the engagement of men in organisations, such as major corporates, to help them generate plans to promote and develop a strong pipeline of women leaders. Their organisation will perform better in a more uncertain world; the more diverse one’s strategy the greater the breadth of thinking strategically. It is proven that gender balance is one way of empowering that broader vision.”
In recent years, the rate of growth of women entrepreneurs has been at least double that of their male counterparts, heralding a Golden Age for women entrepreneurs equipped with inspiration, know-how and funding. PWN supports companies and organisations with corporate services, to raise their visibility as a gender balanced organisation and meeting their geographical needs with a comprehensive programme. Together they place gender balance at the very core of business operations.
PWN’s Co-President, Rina G Lynch, says:
“We welcome Greg’s practical experience in this field along with the academic rigour he adds to the understanding of organisational concerns. In a context of mounting pressure on companies and managers to become more gender balanced. PWN works to bring a perspective of helping women grow in their careers to make a difference in male-dominated corporate world. In this, the perspective of men to assist from positions of strength is invaluable.
“It’s time to move on from some of the 20th century’s identity politics and its backlashes, and open a dialogue where all genders and businesses can craft a new, more constructive and more inclusive dialogue - for the benefit of everyone!”
