Organisations need data to solve problems
That’s essential for tracking progress – if you don’t know where you were, you won’t know how far you’ve come. Companies have to identify specific hurdles, so they can start working on solutions and then measure the progress being made.
What you should do
- Establish robust metrics for the recruitment, retention and development of women from the outset.
- Set targets for the representation of women at board and senior levels and in science, engineering or technical roles. Be clear about who leads and who has responsibility for all of this.
