I will be delivering this talk to the Economics, Commerce and Finance Society (ECFS) at Macquarie University on Monday 12 October, 2015.
What does diversity actually mean and what is the link between diversity and increased organisational performance. This session will take you on a journey to explore how we have arrived at this point and how societal and cultural pressures affect the way that we have created our corporate environments. Lets strip away the buzzwords and the favourites in the gender diversity discussion like pay gap, women’s leadership and mentoring and see what that actually translates to in real terms and why things aren’t changing as quickly as we might like. Susanne Moore will discuss some of the findings in the resources industry through her research and consulting using the Diversity Program Review Framework (DPRF)and the concepts of Gender Economics. Find out what you can do in the new economy and why it is important for both men and women Lead in the Female Economy* by understanding the way that diversity will impact the ‘new business transformation’.
*#imputtingmyhandup to Lead in the Female Economy is a program of The Centre for Gender Economics and Innovation which will be launched at the end of October 2015.
