The Gender Equality project (GEP) is a networked organisation of industry partners and associates collaborating in pursuit of a common mission;
‘To produce a significant and sustainable improvement in the gender balance in leadership roles of participating organisations’
The underlying assumption is that a more balanced representation of men and women in leadership and decision making roles will mean that organisations are making better use of the full range of available talent and better meeting the needs of both men and women at work. It also makes good business sense. Please see here for the Business Case for Gender Diversity.
Over the past three years the GEP has developed new, validated and tailored solutions to address gender inequality in leadership roles of industry partner organisations. Extensive research has been conducted into four core programs of relevance as identified by our industry partners, namely;
- Unconscious Bias
- Targets and Quotas
- Flexible Work Practices
We are very grateful for the generous support of our Industry Partners and their valuable collaboration with our research.
