What Men Can Easily Do To Support Gender Equality
Traditionally, men dominate decision making in many work environments
EVERYONE benefits when there is gender equity at all levels, including upper management. And it’s at this level, the C-suite, where, historically, women have been missing.
There is increasing stakeholder (government, society) momentum to include women in organizations.
Many times, when an organization tries to set hiring quotas, the results lead to women feeling as though they are only hired to fill the ‘token’ positions, not based on their skills and qualifications.
We work with organizations to address the misperception that there is a ‘gender equity issue to be resolved’, and shift the dialogue to “it makes good business sense” to have a gender diverse workforce.
How to Deal With Resistance to Gender Diversity & Inclusion
Change of any kind is often met with some level of resistance so it is no surprise that some people – both men and women – resist changing a workplace culture to be more gender diverse and inclusive.
In the report “The Path of Least RESISTANCE to Gender Diversity & Inclusion”, you will learn strategies to overcome resistance on this issue and how to positively engage and influence those who do not see the benefits of changing the status quo.
Actions to Create Gender Equity in the Workplace
Corporate awareness on gender equity has never been greater than it is now and both the public and private sectors are seeking ways to move from why should I do this, to how should I do this.
Gender Agents from the Centre for Social Intelligence are equipped with the latest knowledge and skills from around the world to help guide your organization through the development of a business case, to gender audits and ultimately a gender strategy to attain a more gender equitable workplace. Their gender expertise has informed Ministers, parliamentary committees, industry associations, senior corporate executives, not-for-profit organizations on ways to move toward gender balanced workplace.
The Centre for Social Intelligence is pleased to be partnering on the National Action Plan for Gender Equity in the Forest Sector. For this 3-year initiative CSI will work alongside the Canadian Institute for Forestry. You can find out more about this and our other projects by clicking here.

This is achieved by giving individuals in an organization the necessary tools and skills to develop themselves to create a healthy and sustainable work environment for all.
