Description of the action
In Q2 2018, all line managers attended a half-day “Gender Balance” workshop.
The initiative was organized by our Diversity &inclusion committee and Executive Committee, with the sessions delivered by an external host.
We discussed there why gender balance can sometimes be a business issue, shared our respective experiences and points of view, and collaboratively defined solutions to accelerate progress towards gender balance.
The workshop was an initial step in the change process. A follow-up workshop “Together we Thrive” takes place in September 2018 between the Diversity &inclusion committee, Executive Committee and some participants of the initial session to review the ideas proposed and define a tangible action plan to accelerate progress towards a thriving gender balanced working environment.
Our Diversity &inclusion committee (including volunteering employees from various business lines, CEO and Head of HR) defined a mission statement and priority actions (conscious that we can't act on all D&I aspects at once). We received and analysed our HR statistics and agreed to focus on gender balance, to ensure women progress as much as men in senior roles.
Better understand why gender balance can sometimes be a business issue and collaboratively define solutions to accelerate progress towards gender balance.
