What is Gender Diversity?

In order to have a fair and productive working environment, an equal balance of men and women is required. Yet despite working in the modern age, the todays workforce is not equal and balanced. Men and women are not hired at a similar and consistent rate, are not paid equally and are not given the same working opportunities with the same promotional opportunities. Gender Diversity in the workplace should mean that men and women are hired at a similar and consistent rate and are paid equally, given the same working opportunities and are given the same promotional opportunities.

What can be done to address this?

Gender Diversity Training, as part of our diversity and conscious inclusion training programmes can help to improve your business on many levels.

Companies who work to increase the gender balance in the upper quartiles can expect to benefit from:

  • Improved financial performance
  • Reduced Risk
  • More challenging and robust decision making
  • Increase in the attraction of a wider talent pool

Reducing gender gaps in labour market participation, Science, technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) qualifications and wages, could increase the size of the UK economy by around 2% or £55 billion by 2030*

Gender Diversity Training, along with Unconscious Bias, Inclusion and Positive Action Development Training can:

Increase office morale and positivity. If women have a sense that there is a chance to progress thanks to equal gender representation in senior roles then it can vastly increase productivity and positivity which can filter through the rest of the office.

Decrease employee turnover. Businesses with an inclusive culture are significantly more likely to have a lower turnover rate due to increased morale and equality. And a team that stays together longer more often delivers increased results.

Widen your talent pool. Businesses that embrace gender diversity training are opening their doors to a more diverse and stronger talent pool. One with unique attributes that a balanced workforce of male and female workers can bring.

Improved Reputation. A business with a strong record of gender diversity and equality in the workplace is more likely to tap into the female workers seeking a career with a business that has real opportunities for promotion and development.

Direct representation. Women influence over 85% of retail decisions so in order to have a diverse approach to your business goals, you need a diverse workforce.

Gender Diversity Training has gained prominence in businesses across the globe with many STEM Sector businesses promoting their diversity through annual gender pay reports and diversity and inclusion action plans. Gender can be a complex topic yet a misunderstanding of gender diversity can fuel negative traits such as sexism in the workplace, part of a wider issue with Unconscious Bias within business teams.

Gender Diversity Training can help your workforce gain a better understanding of:

  • the current gender diversity landscape
  • why embracing gender diversity is an important business issue
  • recruitment and attraction strategies for greater workforce diversity
  • the barriers to achieving gender diversity
  • how to implement an effective gender diversity action plan to support your business needs
