Why gender and diversity?
To us, addressing diversity means creating an environment that values individuals, their differences, ideas and potential. It means to strive for more inclusive organisational structures, rethinking team dynamics and establishing an innovation-driven agile working culture that allows everyone to equally explore and expand.
Positioning women at all levels - including the top - provides female role models. A powerful facilitator for societal change and competitive advantage in the war for female talents.
Teams of different-thinking individuals with diverse backgrounds feel more inspired and come up with more creative and unconventional ideas. Did someone say innovation?
Your organisation's image as innovative and future-oriented is intertwined with gender and identity representation - internally and externally.
Employees are more committed to their organisation when they feel comfortable in their daily working environment. Being conscious of different people's needs is key for a positive work experience and long lasting -relationships.
Having a strong standpoint on diversity and equality is inevitable if you want to be appealing towards wealthy target groups like Generation Y. CSR is no longer sufficient.
