Shape Talent

Who we are

We are a gender diversity consulting and coaching business with a mission to enable more women to move into senior leadership roles in business. We want both men and women to thrive and work with organisations to ensure strong Talent, and Diversity and Inclusion strategies and to achieve meaningful progress in gender equality.

What we do

Shape Talent partner with you to really understand what is getting in the way of greater gender balance in your organisation and to address this. We start with a through diagnostic using our proprietary 3 Barriers model to ensure you invest wisely in solving the right problems. Together we then identify the 2-3 key areas that will have the biggest positive impact on your gender balance.

We typically work with global clients, and while every client is different, some of the more common solutions for our clients include:

- overhauling and de-biasing policies and practices

- inclusion awareness-raising interventions for senior leaders

- implementation of sponsorship programmes

- authentic leadership programmes

- acceleration programmes for women

- group coaching for women

- executive coaching for women

- helping to set up, or to maximise the value of your employee resource groups and womens' networks

- workshops targetting the areas that traditional leadership development doesn't cover (e.g. strategic networking, managing power and politics, managing Imposter Syndrome)

- and much more
