We Provide Career and Leadership Development Programs for your Female Employees.

Despite honest efforts from many organizations, a large percentage of female staff remains disengaged. This is truer for the growing number of women of color. Our programs can help you turn this around.

As the FIRST career and leadership development company focused on under represented women, we have the cultural know-how and expertise to provide them with all the resources and coaching they need to take their careers to the next level.

What is Red Shoe Tuesday?

RSM coined the Red Shoe Tuesday Campaign as an invitation to wear your red shoes and ties to work on Tuesdays to show your support for other women’s career success. By wearing this weekly visual reminder, not only will you feel more empowered, but you will also contribute to keep top of mind the conversation about the benefits of having more women in executive positions and what women need to achieve career success at your place of employment.

What are the Principles behind the movement?

Regardless of the career and leadership development programs you are already implementing, you can always amplify their impact by following our principles:

  • Mentor younger or less experienced women whenever you have a chance
  • Offer opportunities to women who are eager to learn
  • Provide honest feedback to women in your network, and avoid hurtful comments or unnecessary criticism
  • Cultivate your relationship with women on your team
  • Celebrate the accomplishments of women publicly
  • Refrain from bad-mouthing women
  • Avoid using labels that contribute to stereotyping women

You can purchase the RSM Principles Poster in large quantities to display them around your organization.

How did all start?

After years of research, personal experience, and the publication of Find Your Inner Red Shoes (Penguin 2013,) Mariela Dabbah, award-winning, best-selling author, realized women needed a new definition of professional success. Success as a journey, not a destination. A path they create for themselves. She also realized that in order to move the needle in female representation at the highest levels of decision making, the conversation needed to continue year-round on the opportunities and corporate culture necessary to advance in their careers. Mariela launched the Red Shoe Movement and coined Red Shoe Tuesday as the day when women wear red shoes to work and men wear red ties as a sign of support for women’s leadership development and career success. The movement is supported by 7 basic principles.

Leading organizations are aware that higher representation of women at executive levels positively impact their bottom line. Companies across the world are bringing the Red Shoe Movement programs to their organizations as an effective way to attract, engage and promote their Latina employees.
