Diversity, yes, thank you. But how and what works?
Network for Internationalization At the last network meeting of the year, the overall theme is the UN’s World Goal, and in Networking for Internationalization we dive into Objective 5 about equality and inclusion in the labor market. We visit Anne Sofie Josephsen, Business Director of Above & Beyond, who is behind the exciting initiative of the Diversity Council.
The Diversity Council is a strategic alliance consisting of some of Denmark’s largest companies, including Maersk, PwC, Tryg, Microsoft, Leaders, Coloplast, etc. whose CEOs and HR managers meet twice a year to share experiences and challenges to accelerate the process of getting women into top management positions.
Anne Sofie will present research from a new McKinsey report and provide good examples of cases from The Diversity Council, which the network can subsequently use as a starting point for dialogue about what is needed to move to the agenda. How do we get more women into industries and positions where they are currently underrepresented?
