“Are we there yet?” Putting gender equality research into practice

Research and thinking about how we improve workplace gender equality outcomes has reached critical mass. But is it leading to change at the workplace level? Associate Professor Rae Cooper and Professor Marian Baird of the Women, Work and Leadership Research Group will discuss the latest insights from their program of research across topics including work and care, valuing women, flexible working arrangements and new research projects on women in male dominated occupations and professions, and women and the future of work.

Hear from leading practitioners including Libby Lyons (Director, Workplace Gender Equality Agency), Troy Roderick (Male Champions of Change), Tracey Howe (NCOSS) and Menaka Cooke (Women Chiefs of Enterprises) about key challenges for women at work and how the latest research can help us meet them.

Together, these speakers will form a panel in a provocative exchange of diverse perspectives. Join us over breakfast and hear about leading edge thinking and practice in workplace gender equality initiatives.
