Over the past few days we've talked a lot about ways in which companies and nonprofits can work together to close the leadership gap. But, many of you may be wondering what that looks like on the individual level.

We're inspired by the momentum of International Women's Day yesterday and eager to keep the conversation going. Today we're bringing back a few key ways that all sectors can work together to close the gender gap - specifically through skills-based volunteering initiatives.
With tremendous global activism for women's equality, there is now, more than ever, a strong momentum to close the gender gap. At Common Impact, we recognize the need for gender parity across all sectors and are consistently working to hone our unique model of social impact to design programs that both engage and develop female leaders at all levels of their careers. It has been proven time and time again that gender-balanced teams deliver better and more sustainable performance and that companies with more gender-balanced leadership teams out-perform those with less.
