5 lessons learnt while working to close the gender gap

Greetings,
 

According to The World Economic Forum , every year, The Global Gender Gap Report offers an important opportunity to reflect on the state of gender equality around the world - where we are and how far we still have to go.
This year, as always, the results are striking: at the rate we're currently going, it could take us 170 years - the better part of two centuries - before we see economic parity between women and men.
Ernst & Young CEO, Mark Weinberger, has made remarkable strides towards Gender Equality, and has learnt some valuable lessons along the way.
 
Lesson 1: Measure your gaps - and then measure your results
Lesson 2: Make sure high-potential women have sponsors, mentors and advocates
Lesson 3: The only way to counter unconscious bias is to be conscious of biases
Lesson 4: Focus on men, too
Lesson 5: Set the tone from the top - and throughout your organization

Wise Words

Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
Kofi Annan
If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things.
Plato
Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others.
