Gender Equity in Action: Case Studies
Gender equity in theory is interesting, in action it's life changing. It is a topic that's been researched, discussed and debated on a global scale. Recently we have seen gender equity dominate the news globally.
There has been significant research, discussion and debate about why we need to achieve true gender equity. However, it remains clear that for many of us, we need to know more about the steps we can take to contribute to change needed to deliver real equity into our workplaces and beyond. There's never been a better time to do this than now, especially as International Women's Day draws closer and the topic again becomes forefront in our minds.
This panel discussion will provide participants with an opportunity to hear from three leaders about the work they and their organisations are undertaking with the aim to improve gender equity on a global, national and local scale. They are three great speakers each with a different lens on how to approach gender equity for their stakeholders. The event will provide an opportunity for participants to explore what gender equity looks like in contemporary workplaces. They'll share with us the initiatives they are implementing and provide us with examples of actionable steps that we can take back to our own workplaces. This event will be of particular interest to leaders, diversity and inclusion practitioners, Human Resource professionals and others with an interest in actively, efffectively improving gender equity in their workplaces.
Please book early to secure your place as this is expected to be a popular event and SPOTS ARE LIMITED!
