Five reasons gender equality makes business more productive and profitable:

1.Gender equality attracts top talent

2.Gender equality can reduce expenses

3.Companies with gender equality perform better

4.Gender equality improves national productivity and competitiveness

5.Gender inequality wastes resources

Gender equality is achieved when people are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of whether they are a woman or a man.

Many countries worldwide, including Australia, have made significant progress towards gender equality in recent decades, particularly in areas such as education. However, women continue to earn less than men, are less likely to advance their careers as far as men, and are more likely to spend their final years in poverty. At the same time, men often find it more difficult to access family-friendly policies or flexible working arrangements than women. 

The aim of gender equality in the workplace is to achieve broadly equal outcomes for women and men, not exactly the same outcome for all individuals.

Achieving gender equality is important for workplaces not only because it is ‘fair’ and ‘the right thing to do’,  it is also vitally important to the bottom line of a business and the productivity of our nation.

Our panel will discuss these issues – and more. BOOK NOW.
