‘As leaders, we have to create the conditions allowing our staff, whether men or women, to develop their full potential and reach their career goals. Achieving gender equality requires more than boosting female recruitment; we must encourage our female staff members to take the steps necessary to advance their careers. It is our role to foster cultural change in our organisations and make sure that our internal policies protect our diversity.’

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
