Mogul, the ecosystem for more than 30 million women across nearly 200 countries, introduced its latest Invitation Only subscription tool on Wednesday. Invitation Only helps connect businesses with diverse, female talent for executive positions at the vice president, C-suite, and board member levels.

The majority (90%) of senior positions are now landed through networking, but 85% of this network of senior positions are occupied by men, the press release said. While businesses have made efforts to narrow the workforce's gender gap, men still hold 62% of manager positions, while women only hold 38%. 

"We must get rid of biases that diverse talent faces across all levels, keeping them from reaching their goals and realizing their full potential," Tiffany Pham, founder and CEO of Mogul, said in the release. "We therefore created 'Invitation Only' to address this problem women around the world must overcome throughout their careers, by working directly with Fortune 500 companies, high-growth startups, and consulting firms to support their employer branding and executive search efforts to attract, retain, and advance these women in leadership roles." 

Through Invitation Only, organizations can easily connect with senior-level women worldwide, without using an expensive executive recruiting firm. The platform provides access to email promotion around senior-level job postings, monthly analytics reporting to track engagement, and training from an employer branding expert. 

Expedia, Ericsson, Stanley Black & Decker, MediaRadar, and Hansgrohe are some of the businesses who have already subscribed to Invitation Only.
