Many organisations publicly commit to gender balance and inclusion, but closer inspection suggests they talk a good talk but that’s about as far as it goes. They might be compliant with current legislation and market their inclusive brand to attract top talent. They host an event for International Women’s Day and do a Lunch and Learn on awareness training. But the numbers don’t add up. Negative comments appear on social proofing sites and a “pink it and shrink it” product marketing campaign goes wrong.
Join this sessions to learn about the pitfalls of gender washing or “inclusion illusion” and the steps you can take to avoid it, and hear from leading companies in Brussels what their best practices are. Half-way and half- hearted measures can end up damaging your employer brand.
