Set out a clear policy: set clear policies for advancement and promotion – and then follow them. Employees, managers and supervisors also need to follow the policies described in the employee manual.
Organise training: proper training on gender equality to all management personnel and supervisors. Training often involves actions that are triggers for different people.
Hold team-building events that help the employees understand each other better.
Act properly: take all complaints seriously and take proper investigative actions. Your actions must show that you expect everyone to be treated fairly and by the same standards regarding discrimination.
Communicate properly: discuss with the person making the complaint about being subjected to discrimination and with the person accused, as well. Language must be fair and non-accusatory.
Set high goals: formulation of a gender-neutral environment – where everyone is treated equally.
