Gender Equality: How to Create a More Gender Equal Workplace

There are more similarities than gender differences between men and women and yet men and women working beside each other can experience very different workplaces.  This can be to the detriment of the organisation and the people that work in it.


This course explores why gender equality is important for a productive and inclusive workplace; how managers are critical to ensuring a gender-equal workplace and have a responsibility to ensure equal and fair treatment.


The course covers how in everyday people management processes a manager can create a more diverse and equal work environment.  The importance of allyship and how to become an active ally rather than a bystander.  It will also cover the concepts of equal pay and the gender pay gap.
