GENDER, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION SUPPORT

Research has shown that fully utilising the female workforce equates to higher business profits and can help you achieve a higher reputation and be more attractive to diverse talent. It has also shown that getting women into leadership positions will lower the gender pay gap.

HOW TO BE A GLOBALLY 'GENDER PROGRESSIVE' ORGANISATION

Gender is firmly on the global business agenda with movements such as #MeToo and high-profile work-place sexual harassment cases meaning that globalising companies can no longer afford to ignore the implications of the cultural differences regarding gender in the workplace. Companies must align their practices and structures to other cultures with different attitudes towards the gender roles. Otherwise, they will encounter problems ranging from poor talent retention, bad reputation, low productivity and legal disputes. 

Our innovative training and consultation ensures that you can adapt your workplace culture to become a globally gender progressive employer. It covers both compliance and cross-cultural elements to make sure the issue is fully understood and implemented.

Cultural leaders are responding to a climate of fear and exclusion with visions of inclusiveness and balance.

PROMOTING & SUPPORTING FEMALE EX-PATRIATE ASSIGNMENTS 

Research has proven that females are less represented on overseas assignments and that they may be opting out due to perceived pressures with finding the correct family support and nervousness about their ability to do the job. We can support you with:

  • Pre-assignment mentorship so they know about the host country working environment, relevant support networks, expectations of females in leadership roles and child-care options.

 

  • Working with them on assignment understand how to work in a different cultural environment, delegate effectively, lead and manage a team.

 

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION TRAINING

We deliver training or consultancy to make sure:

  • you understand the whole range of diversities within the workforce

  • you can create an inclusive environment to maximise productivity and attract diverse talent.

 Any society that fails to harness the energy and creativity of its women is at a huge disadvantage in the modern world.
