Myths preventing the progression of women
In this publication, you will learn about the current gender diversity progression in the top management of European companies, hear from experts in the field to better understand the persistent myths that could explain the slow progress observed within the governing bodies, as well as testimonials from leaders, who share their knowledge, discoveries, observations, difficulties, solutions and convictions in this long quest for equity.
In addition, CEOs and top executives are invited to discover a practical new self-help tool, free in access, designed to quickly assess if their organisation has implemented the relevant gender diversity programmes, based on ‘six measures that work’ to accelerate gender equality.
Given the slow pace of change, we wanted to understand the persistent myths that may be slowing down companies’ efforts to promote gender diversity.
After collecting a series of expert input and ideas, we chose to analyse eight myths in particular:
When it comes to diversity, it has been shown that the quantity of measures is far less important than the relevancy of the measures for obtaining progress. Therefore, companies must face persisting biases head-on and understand whether they are implementing the ‘right’ measures to achieve sustainable gender equity.
The Gender Balance Observatory collaborated with its members to identify six measures that have proven their effectiveness in accelerating gender diversity in companies. And as a partner of the Observatory, Mazars has taken these measures and co-developed a self-assessment tool for CEOs and management teams: a concrete, educational and practical checklist in the form of a questionnaire which allows them to quickly assess if they have implemented all the ‘right actions’ – those that have proven their effectiveness – in their organisation.
