What does it take to change the representation of women in leadership? Many executives are keen to achieve gender balance in their organisations, but are not sure how to go about it.
This well-researched, practical guide has chapters on leadership, culture, work practices, talent and performance management. Each chapter summarises what best practice organisations are doing, and the results they have achieved. Each chapter provides a guide on how to make progress towards best practice. Each section within each chapter turns the evidence and experience presented into a straightforward “To do” checklist of workable actions.
Having assessed their organisation’s progress and reviewed best practice, executives can then select key actions to inspire and focus their change efforts.
The book’s final chapter focuses on personal change and provides a process for raising awareness of unconscious bias and allowing conscious evaluation. Practical tools are provided to help minimise the impact of bias on decision making.
