Compelling case for workplace change

These uncertain times have presented a compelling case for workplace change.

In thinking of the recovery phase, how do we get ahead of the curve for greater balance in workplaces? We are seeing more workplace flexibility WFH, bigger focus on family, greater emphasis on outcomes and outputs and teams that are inclusive of women vs homogeneous teams that are delivering the best possible thinking, leadership and decision-making, particularly in a VUCA environment.

In the shift to WFH at scale, leaders are not seeing any losses to productivity but increased communication with their teams, increased internal collaboration with a greater focus on people, care and empathy.
"We cannot waste a crisis and I think one of the best learnings is that there are gains to be made and progressive organisations are already looking at the gains."
- Tania Cecconi from CEOs for Gender Equity

The Workplace Through a Gender Lens

Coming out of the pandemic, we are asking leaders to focus on the role they can play in leading the recovery of their businesses in a way that locks in the operational gains made, that benefits men and women.

CEOs for Gender Equity Inc. is asking leaders to apply a gender lens, which starts with them reflecting on their own leadership and how they can lead in a way that improves outcomes for women that also benefits men.

Click the link below to see our CEO Toolkit that CEOs can apply during this time. It also includes a summary of our last CEO Summit held in September (since our March CEO Summit was deferred).
