Gender equality under the spotlight

Wednesday, 18th July, 2018 5:12pm

An upcoming event in UCC will focus on how organisations can improve gender diversity.

The event will discuss which management practices are most likely to increase gender diversity and how Irish organisations can leverage career pipelines to deliver gender diversity across all levels.

The event will also address fundamental questions about gender diversity such as what value can organisations realistically expect from higher levels of gender diversity, particularly in management roles.

The conference will be hosted by the Human Resources Research Centre (HRRC).

Ronan Carbery of the HRRC said: “Some countries are increasing regulatory requirements that monitor organisations gender diversity composition and practices. Organisations are under pressure to increase the representation of women in senior management roles and narrow gender salary gaps. It is these issues and many more that we will discuss at this conference.”

The event will run from 8.30-10.30am in Devere Hall, UCC.
