BOSTON - Leading Women, the world's premier consulting firm for bringing Gender Balance solutions to business, is pleased to announce it has joined Leading NOW, the global advisor to organizations seeking to change mindsets, behaviors, and cultures to be inclusive for all.
Leading NOW's affinity for research-based programming, content, and strategic solutions built on ground-breaking, DE&I expert led research, led to the merger.
"We are thrilled to be bringing all of Leading Women's world class intellectual property on women's leadership development and Gender Dynamics to Leading NOW, and are excited to gain research and content around gender to broaden our knowledge base," said Gretchen Sussman, Chief Commercial Officer of Leading NOW.

a research division that brings together the best thinking on the impact of gender in the workplace. We look forward to the leading-edge discoveries this research will bring to our combined solutions."
The Gender Dynamics Institute joins Leading NOW's Center for Diversity & Inclusion to bring together the world's greatest minds in diversity, equity and inclusion; to share insights, observations, and discoveries; provide guidance to existing Leading Women and Leading Forward solutions; and to recommend the creation of new solutions to help clients reach their inclusive talent & culture goals.
