Getting real about gender equality





What’s stopping us from creating a more inclusive, gender-equal working world? 

Organizations, CEOs, boards and investors are increasingly focused on empowering women in the workforce. And employees across all generations say that working on diverse, inclusive teams brings out their individual and collective best. The societal and business benefits of building a diverse workforce and inclusive culture are clear. So why is progress so slow? Across industries and geographies, women still face challenges — including inequitable treatment, pay and access to opportunities.


It’s time to get real about gender equality.


The only way to ensure equality of opportunity is through real cultural change. This starts at the top with purpose-driven leadership and requires openness to reinvention, greater transparency and deeper commitment to engaging all employees — including men — in the journey. Mercer’s next-generation When Women Thrive research outlines the new path forward by challenging accepted HR practices and beliefs, and revealing the disruptive approaches that are creating a more inclusive working world. 


On January 21, join Mercer experts and a special guest panel of senior business leaders to examine the real obstacles to achieving inclusive cultures and workplaces — and explore new strategies that actually make a difference. Be the first to preview the key findings from our new global research, in advance of its release for International Women's Day in March.
