How to realise the promise of gender diversity in organisations?

How to realise the promise of gender diversity in organisations?

The business case of gender diversity in organisations is clear: greater diversity means an increased pool of knowledge, perspectives and ideas from which organisations can draw, which in turn should lead to better decision-making, enhanced creativity, and improved performance. Yet, evidence shows that this promise is rarely realised. Instead, diversity often leads to conflict, frustration, and divisions in groups. During this workshop, you will explore the following questions:

  • Are the benefits associated with gender diversity only a myth?
  • What can be done to better manage diversity in organisations?
  • What is the role of leaders in managing diversity?
