Is this simple Gender Diversity formula holding your organisation back?


Quote by Susanne Moore (2017)

 

For the mathematically minded, a Gender Economics formula. When many organisations talk about Diversity or Gender Diversity, they tend to go into a circular state. This is from one of my recent talks about GE highlighting the formula – Diversity (seems to) equal (discussions about) Flexibility (which then go into discussions) that equal Women (then we think women) so equals Flexibility, then it equals Diversity (discussions) and here we are again with Diversity equalling discussions about Women. Of course the discussion should be about way more than that, but this simple formula is one of the things that I think is holding our organisations back from realising actual performance improvement by leveraging diversity.
