Subject: ‘Gender targets and the impact of gender diversity on employment brands’ NAWO NSW Knowledge Share Forum
“3 out of 4 Australian workers support or strongly support their organisation taking action to create a workplace which is diverse and inclusive.” – DCA Inclusion@Work Index 2017-2018
If you work in an inclusive team, you are 19 times more likely to be very satisfied with your job than workers in non-inclusive teams and 4 times more likely to stay with your employer. You are also 10 times more likely to be highly effective than workers in non-inclusive teams, and 9 times more likely to innovate (DCA Inclusion@Work Index 2017-2018).
And 67% – two thirds – of people consider diversity important when deciding where to work (Glassdoor, 2014). The business case for greater gender diversity is certainly compelling, but the frustratingly slow rate of change in achieving greater diversity in leadership positions and male-dominated industries highlight that we need more than just the will to create change.
Are targets the answer? If so, what are the pitfalls and how can they be avoided?
And how can we ensure that organisations are actually ‘walking their gender diversity talk’ – that what they are promoting in the marketplace matches the reality of what happens on the ground? Join NAWO’s NSW Knowledge Share Forum to discuss these challenging questions and many more.
