About

Many business leaders are facing a critical need to transform the skills and working practices in their company due to rapid technological advancement and needing to “build back their businesses better” after the unexpected impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on their companies, the economy and wider society. This book gives them everything they need to know about how to find, attract, promote and importantly retain highly skilled diverse women as the best solution. They know it needs to be done, but don’t know how to do it or how to convince their teams it is beneficial and necessary.

In the form of a pragmatic and easy to use step-by-step guide, the book gives the reader confidence to start building a gender-balanced business straight away during this time of uncertainty. Case studies of best practice in relatable companies give workable solutions devised and implemented by the peers they respect.

Written for business leaders and HR practitioners, it is empathic and motivational and gives tips and techniques to enable them to achieve winning results.

The reader completes a journey that reveals the action they are taking for business success will also leave a positive lasting legacy and help to shape society, and is also a potential path to their own self-actualisation.  Levelling the playing field between the sexes and inspiring future generations will give them a purpose and meaning in life that is a step beyond their financial success.

Key Features
• The only book for leaders on achieving growth through a gender-balanced business
• An easy to follow 6-step guide
• Automotive Case studies to illustrate how relatable businesses have implemented winning ideas
