As a business leader in your community and industry, you have the opportunity to improve gender equality in your organization and inspire others to do the same.
According to Indeed, “Gender equality in the workplace means employees of all genders have access to the same rewards, opportunities, and resources at a company.”
These are just a few measures of workplace equality:
Equal pay and benefits for comparable roles with similar responsibilities
Equal opportunities for promotions and career progression
Equal consideration of needs and skills
It is important to remember that gender equality includes all gender identities, not just women.
By incorporating gender-inclusive practices and policies in your organization, you will invite and attract more diverse employees, customers, clients, and donors – and help set the new standard for everyone.
