Lorraine Jokovic, Communications Council Board Member
Welcome to The Communications Council’s Industry Gender Diversity Hub. This Hub consists of five practical steps that The Communications Council recommends you follow, based on extensive research conducted by The Gender Diversity Group.
Our intention here is not to focus on the reasons why gender diversity is imperative to the future of your organisation. Assuming you have already considered the business case outlined in our research, this site has been designed to prepare you for the necessary changes you will need to instate to improve company culture, strengthen reputation, and ultimately grow your business.
There is no quick fix to changing an entrenched culture. It requires commitment, target setting, real policy and procedural change, and ongoing management – this is not a project, but a vital new approach to business.
We have utilised a lot of the great work and tools developed by organisations such as Chief Executive Women, WGEA, and perhaps most of all, the Male Champions of Change, whose co-Founder, Gordon Cairns, both influenced the formation of our own group of Industry Champions and took the time to mentor.
Our Industry Champions have been the first to trial our recommendations and each has a different story to tell. See footage from our Gender Diversity Forum here.
If you wish to speak to The Communications Council about the Five Step Process, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that all background reading, research and tools are available at the end of each section and in the toolbox at the bottom of this page.
We welcome any feedback you may have. Similarly, we are eager to remain informed of any developments that arise in your organisation as a result of this process. We look forward to hearing from you.
