IWD 2020 Discussion: The cultural markers that signify gender equality in the workplace
Building a gender balanced world.
The AICD (Australian Institute of Company Directors) reported that we have hit 30% of women on boards with no formalised quotas which is a great story to be celebrated but this represents a very small majority of the 6 million working women in Australia. We want to highlight and celebrate what has been achieved at all levels of seniority, especially those behaviours (conscious or unconscious) that enable gender equality now and for the future.
The SR Group is delighted to be hosting a panel discussion to celebrate International Women's Day.
The headline for discussion is to explore "what are the cultural markers that signify gender equality in the workplace".
We invite you to join us on Thursday 5th March, along with business leaders and professionals from a variety of industry sectors for an inspirational and thought provoking panel discussion on how to build a gender-balanced world.
