Women of Influence – White Paper on Solutions to Women’s Advancement

Women of Influence - White Paper on Solutions to Women’s Advancement

In 2012, Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, established our Women’s Advisory Task Force. The Task Force was given the overarching brief to ensure female leadership development and the advancement of women to senior positions in our company.

The most senior leaders in the company are focused on this goal—the Task Force is co-chaired by our Chief Execu- tive and Chief People Officer, with remaining members being other senior executives from across the organization.

Upon establishment, the Task Force identified three focus areas:

• Identifying our top female talent and creating a strong pipeline of women leaders

• Targeted leadership development programs and career sponsorship opportunities

• Positioning Thomson Reuters as a premier company for women

In the past two years, the Task Force has secured tangible gains in each of these areas:

Managed talent discussions on our female talent have created targeted career development opportunities. The Leadership Program for Women is now in its third year, and we have seen promising results: program participants have been either promoted or gained expanded respon- sibilities and scope in their roles. We’ve seen participants having increased agency around their careers, negotiating towards their leadership success and having a stronger presence in the workplace.

Among participants in the Career Sponsorship Program for Women, which includes executive assessments and coaching, a significant number have achieved promotion or expanded roles. Career Sponsorship Programs for mid-level women have been launched in our Legal and Financial & Risk businesses, and in our Technology function.

Our initiative to position ourselves as an employer of choice among female employees has led to new Life and Work Integration Policies across several of our geographies (including parental leave, flexible work- ing and un-paid leave and increased domestic partner benefits), leading to Thomson Reuters being named a Top 100 Company for Remote Jobs by FlexJobs, as well as one of Indeed.com’s Top 25 Best Companies for Work-Life Balance.
