Gi Group Holding partners with Tack TMI to develop a pilot programme to provide women with the tools and support to achieve their true potential.



34 Participants from global HQ and local offices, with differing seniority levels provided valuable insight on how to improve areas of their business life.


Peer-to-peer coaching used to share experiences with access to peer support, networking and mentoring highlighted as most valued development practices.


Feedback was positive and will kick start a wider leadership programme to bring about culture change to create a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

This pilot was designed to help women to better position themselves in a stronger way to effectively break the glass ceiling, without the need to adapt legacy-based male-oriented leadership styles. The feedback will help us improve as we extend the range of programmes to support our people, such as parents at work

The challenge

Address the imbalance of females in leadership roles by nurturing, supporting and developing women leaders and unlocking their potential to succeed.

The solution

Tack TMI developed a pilot programme providing research insight and the tools for women to become aware of their leadership styles within the working environment and provide feedback on how they can be better supported.


“To constantly innovate and improve, we need to think outside the box. And if that box still sees women in top management as exceptions, then it’s time to get out now! I always prefer to think in terms of the uniqueness of the person, and I think that’s the way of thinking we have at GI Group Holding.”
