Let’s Talk About Gender Diversity in the Workplace – What Is It? Why is it Necessary?
Simply put, gender diversity is the equitable or fair representation of people of different genders within your organization. But gender diversity in the workplace isn’t just about having the right mix of males and females in your organization. You need to look at the bigger picture.
Below, let’s look at some key questions to ask yourself:
- Does your organization provide a safe environment for women, transgender, or non-binary individuals that you hire?
- Do you have a strong anti-bullying and anti-harassment policy in place?
- Is there any unconscious bias in the way that your organizational processes and systems are set up?
- Is the balance of power in your organization equal – is there sufficient gender diversity on your executive team, on your board(s), and in management roles?
Simply hiring women, transgender, or non-binary people into your workplace isn’t enough. To reap the many benefits of gender diversity, you need to empower those workers to not only reach but exceed their full potential!
