Overview

One in four Americans believe humans will figure out time travel before women reach equality in the corner office - Rockefeller Foundation Survey 2017

Gender equality is in the news.  A Google software engineer recently argued that women "have more neuroticism” and this may lead to less women in higher stress jobs. Whilst his employers promptly fired him, internal memos have shown that he had a lot of support. The publishing of BBC pay information has been a big news story - what hasn't made the news so much is that the subsequent open letter asking for equality of pay was only signed by women at the BBC.

If we are to have real gender equality in the workplace, it is essential that leaders of a company (male and female) come together to formulate a coherent strategy for how this can be done, rather than just ticking the boxes of the gender pay gap requirements.

This course will give you up to date information on gender in leadership and will show you how you can lead your organisation in attracting, retaining and developing women leaders. It will allow you to examine your own organisational culture and biases and how it may help or hinder progression of women leaders.

We will use the latest research on gender parity and its economic impact, to show why closing the gender pay gap makes great business sense and how to make the business case for equality to your organisation. We will ensure that thinking on the day links to how you can practically change and develop your business plans.

You will leave the day with five questions that your company needs to be able to answer at a strategic level and a practical plan to ensure you can make clear changes within your company.

What you'll learn

  • The three biggest cultural challenges - unconscious bias, organisational stereotypes, role models - and what you can do about them
  • The top ten ways to combat hidden bias and how to take the bias out of your recruitment and interviews
  • Why change has to be led from the top and ingrained in every aspect of your business
  • How to make the business case for equality - is gender diversity a strategic priority for your organisation?
  • Case studies from businesses that have achieved a culture of equal gender diversity
  • Five questions you need to have the answers to and five things you need to implement as foundations for equality

Who is it for?

This course is for Chief Executives, Senior Leaders, HR & OD Directors and anyone who can influence the culture of their organisation.
