Consultant for Organizations, for Emerging Female Talent

"Gender diversity on executive teams is strongly correlated with profitability and value creation." 


- McKinsey & Company, Delivering Through Diversity Study

The  Business Challenge

While many companies are focused on increasing the number of women in senior leadership positions, the bottleneck is actually occurring much sooner for many women in their career - as the first step up to manager.


Known as the “broken rung,” it’s impacting the ability of women to advance their careers – the latest McKinsey report shows women lagging in first time promotions by 28%. 


The  Business Need

Recognizing the need for focus on female talent early in their career, Velera is committed to closing the gap in women being promoted to first time management roles. She uses her first-hand insight as a woman of color, and expertise as a successful leader at Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies to help both organizations and their emerging female talent understand how to effectively prepare for and land first-time management roles.
