HBA New York presents

Making Gender Parity a Reality: Putting Words into Action


Last year’s gender parity event demonstrated a strong business case for having a diverse talent pool. It’s clear from both academic research and personal anecdotes, that organizations with greater gender and cultural diversity out-perform those who don’t. There’s a strong desire on the part of many organizations to shift the demographics of their work-force, but many find it difficult to execute on this. And when they can find the right candidates, retaining them presents an additional challenge.

In order to significantly and sustainably improve diversity, organizations need to reform the following areas:

1) Recruiting--Where are you finding your talent--are you starting with a diverse pool? How can you look outside of the traditional box to find capable people from a wider range of backgrounds?

2) Hiring--How can you identify unconscious bias? Does your HR team have the right training to overcome their own stereotypes about different types of candidates?

3) Retaining--Are you fostering a culture of inclusion and belonging? Do you make a conscious effort to integrate the members of your team, to prevent anyone from feeling ostracized?
