New Report CS Research Institut on Gender Diversity in Switzerland.
In one of our lasts events of the year, we had the pleasure to host Michael Kimmel, American Professor in Sociology and well known expert in gender studies. During his key note, Kimmel preached the importance of raising awareness about gender diversity in male population and the need to include men in the battle for a more gender balanced work environment. Unconscious biases are present and deeply rooted in each gender’s perception of society. Partnering up for gender equality is important, to achieve gender equality, which is a win-win for women and men.
For a more efficient business world, men should start behaving in public as they behave in private, meaning that they should support their loved ones by speaking up and by sharing the tasks and responsibilitiesalso at home Structural change is needed: organizations must value men implied in their families and offer flexible work arrangement for women and men.
Advance Women in Swiss Business thanks again Michael Kimmel for his key note and his powerful ideas about change towards gender equality. Many thanks also to Rebecca Guntern from Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and Clive Bellingham from PwC Switzerland, both members of the board at Advance, for their participation to the debate as panelists.
