Topic 1 Create the conditions for success

How do you know if your organisation has true gender equality? Reflect on the following.

Is gender diversity:

  • Prioritised? (organisation clearly promotes gender equality)

  • Operationalised? (organisation recruits and hires for gender diversity)

  • Modelled? (leaders, culture, systems support gender diversity)

  • Measured? (metrics are collected to track progress)

  • Rewarded? (equality is tied to business metrics)

If not, there’s work to do!

There are many areas in the life of an organisation where a positive culture can be encouraged. Here are four:

  • Leadership

  • Coaching and mentoring

  • Building alliances

  • Persuasion
