WeQual identifies already successful senior women who are one level below C-suite in order to tackle the slow progress in appointing women to executive committee roles.
To enter, you must be a woman who – at the date of entry submission – is a direct report into an executive committee member: eIther your line manager is an executive committee member, or you report into an executive committee member in some or all aspects of your role. The company you work for should be listed on one of the major stock exchanges in Europe, Middle East & Africa (excluding the FTSE).
The eight assessment questions have been derived from leadership, psychology, neuroscience and performance research identifying the necessary factors and characteristics of top leaders. We have been careful to ensure questions allow you to showcase your strengths regardless of style, gender or ethnicity.
Together, the WeQual Assessment provide deep insight into your:
