This workshop is aimed at a single company. The concept is part facilitated strategy development day and part education and training. The subject matter is how to attract and retain diverse groups, particularly women. The workshop is suitable for any organisation looking to increase attraction of women into the workplace and then looking to understand how workplace norms and culture might have them loosing the women that they attracted far too soon. We look at processes underlying recruitment, and all aspects of retention to ensure you keep those precious employees once they have been recruited. Participants will walk away with an understanding of strategy, pertinent to their own organisation, and tactics to increase amd keep the numbers of an under-represented group.
The members of the company ERG (Employee Resource Group), for example, the 'Women in........' Group, however, we are clear that is not the job of the under-represented teams to fix the environment. For that reason we suggest that senior executives, HR and power sponsors (an individual at executive level within the company who has power and privilege to share, and time to commit to making things happen) attend this session.
This runs as an online or face-to-face course for a specific company.
