7. Diversify leadership by promoting women to management and executive positions
Are there women in the conference room and E and C suites? It is important to encourage women to pursue careers at all levels of work (especially in male-dominated fields). Show them that while it is important to equally encourage men and women, women are valuable to the overall structure. Also, women should be provided with the resources to improve their skills. A diverse working environment benefits the company’s overall innovation and performance goals. In addition, diversification of leadership facilitates the identification of discrimination issues in the workplace. Having a Diversity Committee is a way of promoting an efficient discussion of identity, power, and privilege in the workplace. In addition to addressing discrimination, it will bring change to the hands of those who are under the leadership level and face discrimination.
Companies that allow women to reach their aspirations are more likely to succeed and keep these employees. In a bid to promote women empowerment at the workplace, In.Corp is proud to have a workforce ratio of 70% (women) to 30% (men). Also, 60% of the women in its organisation make up the top management.
