with Women of Color
With time at a premium, and resources scarce, it is more critical than ever for Companies to support Women of Color by accelerating them through mentoring, sponsorships, training, and leadership development initiatives
What is preventing WOMEN OF COLOR from reaching the highest rungs of the LEADERSHIP Ladder? Multiple studies have concluded that Companies with diverse Leadership outperform the less inclusive. Yet, some Companies are behind in embracing gender equity. Failure to address gender equity may cost Your Company talent, brand value, or customers.
At Poimena Consulting we support our Clients by transforming their Leadership Pipeline with Women of Color at every level within the Company. Let’s talk about what our Leadership Development Solutions can do for You, Your Executive Team, Your Company, and Your Community!!!
What We Do

Executive & Leadership Development Coaching
Coaching is an opportunity to learn more about YOU. We help strengthen Leaders, uncover blind spots, improve behaviors all to support a Leader’s transition into new roles and responsibilities.
The POWER Factor for Women in Leadership
WOMEN LEADERS are secretly plagued with lack of confidence, not knowing how to use power, nor influence their teams and others to obtain goals and achieve success. It doesn’t have to be that way!
Diversity & Inclusion
We help Companies advance Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives at every level of the Leadership Ladder to ensure that women of diverse identities are well
Team Development and Team Building
Teams go through varied stages of development to become productive. We empower teams to develop and build in collaboration and effectiveness.
Mental Toughness in Leadership
Effective and successful Leaders need to be mentally tough in the 4 C’s (control, confidence, commitment & challenge) for improved performance, wellbeing, positive behaviours, and aspirations.

Empower Your Pipeline with WOC
In varied research findings on the state of WOMEN at work, we see the same pattern: Women are having a worse experience than men. More so, WOMEN OF COLOR are having a worse experience of them all.
In these findings it is common across all sectors and industries the challenges of racism, micro-aggressions, embedded bias, and lack of representation, exist in all organizations. As a result, Companies are losing WOMEN LEADERS, damaging their sustainability through sickness and absence, and weakening their ability to manage LEADERS well and in turn, failing to create diverse, effective organizations.
What are other barriers holding WOMEN OF COLOR back in YOUR Company? More importantly, what can YOUR Company do to build a pipeline of WOMEN OF COLOR at every level to ensure they are treated fairly and given equal opportunities to learn, grow, and lead?
