ITA Women in Titanium (WiT) Committee Charter & 2-Year Plan
About Women in Titanium
Studies have shown providing more opportunities for women in the workforce can be an important element of an organization’s strategy for the future. It is no longer just about “good corporate responsibility”. Including women in corporate culture is also becoming good business practice.
Leaders in management are responsible for creating the atmosphere and overseeing the organization's diversity approach as it affects the strategy, risk, and performance of their company. Organizations who provide women with management opportunities may find themselves leading as a contributor to success with improved profitability in this global economy.
Incorporating women in the workforce is becoming an increasingly important issue for companies in the U.S. Many countries are undergoing profound demographic shifts. Employers are grasping with an aging population, low birth rates and global competition for skilled workers. As the baby boomer generation enter into retirement, many organizations will experience skilled workforce shortages.
One of the key goals for the WiT committee will be to develop a mentoring program consisting of long-term relationships where protégés benefit from the professional experience of the mentor. The mentor’s main role will be to challenge the protégé and to guide her depending on her school or career aspirations. Mentors will be encouraged to inspire others, share their leadership skills, and offer their communication and interpersonal skills. Providing proactive career-oriented support, improving skills, competences, experience and networks through a sustainable and trustful relationship is an efficient and powerful method.
