A big warm welcome to Global Women new Chair Theresa Gattung, and new Board Members: Julia Raue, Karleen Everitt and Tanya Black!

What is an inclusive culture?

Join us on our mission to get people talking about how unconscious bias could be influencing the way we behave, especially in the workplace. No matter how well-meaning we are, we all have in-built biases. And it’s little slips like the language we use at work that mean we unintentionally exclude or favour our colleagues. Together, lets acknowledge and address this.

 

What is unconscious bias?

Every one of us has built-in biases that can lead us to make unfair assumptions, no matter how well-intentioned we might be. Our brains create automatic mental shortcuts that help us process the vast amount of information we have to deal with every day. Most of the time this is helpful. But when it comes to unconscious attitudes and beliefs about certain groups of people, it can cause problems. Overcoming unintended discrimination is critical to creating diverse, inclusive and high-performing workplaces. That’s why it’s important to start these conversations about overcoming unconscious bias.

Fairness at every stage

Ensure your processes are unbiased and inclusive at all stages of the employee journey, from hiring to retention, promotion to pay review, to parental leave.

Review and reflect

Make your gender pay gap, your plan to address it and your results transparent to the entire organisation as well as externally.

Share what you learn

We'll close the gap faster if everyone shares what is working and what isn’t. Ensure leaders speak up at events and in the media, to spread the word.
