Where we are now..
Investing in and building gender knowledge supports all other impact areas we have identified and is ongoing work. To encourage change across our teams, we need to build a baseline gender competency that includes shifting views on gender, inclusivity and other identity factors. Parallel to building competency we need to address our understanding in why gender equality is important and encourage role models to take a lead in teams to demonstrate commitment, behaviours and results. Taking practical steps to invest appropriate time and dedicating effort to train is needed to ensure the entire action plan is supported.
