Path Forward Fundraising Deck

  1. 1. 2016 Fundraising Appeal
  2. 2. Talented women put their careers on hold to care for children • In a study of biz school grads, 37% of millennial women planned to interrupt their career for family compared with 28% of Generation X women • The reality is likely to be higher: While 28% of Gen Xers expected to put their career on hold, in reality 43% did Source: Life and Leadership after HBS, Harvard Business School, May 2015
  3. 3. Women make this choice willingly and unwillingly • 80% of mothers would prefer to work • Nearly half would like reduced hours to manage work/life conflict • When those options don’t exist, some choose to take time off
  4. 4. While many of these women plan to return to work, one study found as many as 30% never do … Source: Sylvia Ann Hewlett, Harvard Business Review, Off-Ramps and On-Ramps Revisited, June 2010
  5. 5. Why? The penalty women pay for a gap on their resume is high “At every interview there was this awkward pause when they noticed the gap. They acted like I’d spent the time in jail.” – a 2015 Return Path returnee who was out of the workforce for a little less than two years caring for her newborn son
  6. 6. Meanwhile…
  7. 7. Gender diversity is a hot topic that gets companies in hot water • “Dropbox Sees Drop in Women in Latest Diversity Report, Slight Gains For Blacks Hispanics” - International Business Times • “Inside Pinterest’s Plans To Fix Its Diversity Problem” - Fast Company • “Twitter Still Has A Major Problem With Employee Diversity” - The Verge • “Facebook’s New Diversity Numbers Are Still Pathetic” - Wired • “Intel isn’t Diverse Enough And It Knows” - Wired
  8. 8. Percentage of female technical talent at top tech companies • Twitter: 13% • Amazon: 11% • Google: 18% • Microsoft: 16.9% • Apple: 22% • Facebook: 16 Note: for many of these companies the % of female engineers is lower
  9. 9. Gender diversity improves business performance • McKinsey found that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity were 15% more likely to outperform the companies in the bottom quartile • “The unequal performance of companies in the same industry and the same country implies that diversity is a competitive differentiator shifting market share toward more diverse companies.”
  10. 10. Getting more women back to work would increase gender diversity and the overall talent pool • Every percentage point increase in women’s participation in the labor force would add roughly 1.3 million workers to the US economy
  11. 11. Solution: Midcareer Internships • 20-week paid internships for midcareer professionals who have been out of the workforce for more than two years to accommodate caregiving responsibilities • Provide an on-ramp back to the workforce • Include onboarding, professional development, feedback sessions, networking, and off-boarding
  12. 12. The Big Idea • Create a nonprofit to organize groups of companies in the same geo and train them to run this program • Recruit participants across the network of partners and offer them back-to-work training during the program • Give both partners and participants access to the network throughout the program, especially during off- boarding • The nonprofit becomes self-funding through a fee-for- service model
  13. 13. Network Effect Partners Participants Partners Participants
  14. 14. Sources of funding from partners • Recruiting budget • Hiring just 2 returnees would cover the cost of the program compared with traditional recruiting fees • Diversity budget • Companies pour money into programs that don’t have immediate impact – this program can drive measurable change • Philanthropy budget • Companies that can’t participate in the program will still be able to support our efforts
  15. 15. Why do we think this will work? Because we already did it.
  16. 16. Return Path, a data solutions provider, faced the challenges of gender diversity and talent shortages and piloted midcareer internships … • 2014: 1 woman; mixed experience but clear that there was an idea to be explored • January 2015: 6 women; 80% were hired • Added structure, HR involvement, building on learning • Result: Positive experience for managers and returnees, high success rate
  17. 17. And attracted press attention …
  18. 18. Then we expanded it with partnerships
  19. 19. And the program is having a huge impact for partners and participants

Notes de l'éditeur

  • 80% of mothers actually want to work, but nearly half of them want part-time options that will reduce their work/life conflict
  • This is a huge loss of talent for all businesses. It also contributes to the inadequate pipeline of women available for senior roles leading to acute gender disparity in the C-Suite.

  • NOTE: While these headlines use “diversity” generally the articles were focused on or substantially about gender diversity.
  • Our program provides a bridge back through paid interships. For the businesses who partner with us they get a low-risk way to tap into a talent pool they are currently not considering. For the women who participate they get an opportunity to prove their value and update their experience.
  • Gender diversity, especially in tech, and women in the workplace are hot topics in media. Our program has already been profiled in SF Chron and HBR and we are in discussions with Fortune to have them write about the launch of the organization.
  • The proof that this concept will work is that we already have 6 partners paying a fee to participate in the program currently run out of Return Path.
