EVENT OVERVIEW

Diversity at the top of the CEO's agenda is crucial for organisations.
 
When CEO's ignore the gender diversity agenda or don't take it seriously, they forego the benefits of higher productivity and better employee engagement.
In a report released by Randstad in May 2013, Australia trails the world in getting this right with only 38 per cent of organisations with at least half of their leadership positions filled by women and 65 per cent believing it is more difficult for women to be promoted into to leadership positions. The outlook is not exactly progressive.
 
Tools, programs and policies that assist companies to set achievable and reportable gender diversity targets will support them in the challenge of setting gender diversity strategies.
Taking concrete and accountable action on gender diversity in all areas of a company - from the top down - will help create an improved corporate culture, increase equality of opportunity for women, and can be applied to broader diversity goals in the workplace.
 
Join CEDA for an insightful discussion about the diversity debate in part two of the Victorian Women in Leadership Series. Only at CEDA.
