Introduction to Gender
|Date||08 March 2017|
This Session will be held as a Webinar
We know that our workforces are becoming diverse. We also know that an inclusive work culture is one where individuals can be themselves and where inclusive employers harness and nurture their diverse talent.
Gender equality in the workplace is the starting point for many diversity strategies. To ensure a good gender balance organisations need to remove barriers to the recruitment, retention and progression of both men and women. Generally, women are underrepresented in the workplace, and especially at senior management/Director and Board level.
HR Managers need to consider positive action interventions to encourage gender diversity. Organisations with 250+ employees are working now to meet the regulations for Gender Pay Gap Reporting and understand what this data can do to help achieve gender equality.
To coincide with International Women’s Day on 8th March, this session, led by Kieron O’Reilly , will enable you to:
- Learn about the demographics of gender equality• Articulate the business case for gender equality in the workplace
- Understand the legislation as it relates to gender (sex) equality

- Consider the types of intervention which can help your organisation to attract, retain and progress women
