Gender equality in the workplace isn’t just a nice idea to pop on your corporate website, it’s a smart business strategy that will help your company thrive.
Women aren’t used to their full potential and are an untapped resource
Strides may have been made but globally women are only responsible for 37% of GDP despite the fact they make up more than 50% of the population. And many countries fall well below this, for example women in India account for just 17% of its GDP.
At every level women are underrepresented and according to the World Economic Forum, gender parity won’t be achieved until 2186. Here in Australia, only 5% of ASX 200 companies have a female CEO, senior female managers earn on average $93,000 less than men doing the same job and 95% of CEOs, 91% of chief financial officers and 87% of group executive teams are men.
