To maximise the use of the customised benchmark reports to reporting organisations, the WGEA has developed the Gender strategy toolkit, which enables organisations to diagnose performance, set goals and build a comprehensive gender equality strategy. The toolkit provides guidance for organisations needing assistance meeting the minimum standards, those aiming to become an Employer of Choice for Gender Equality or organisations looking to adopt best practice.
What is in the toolkit?
The toolkit is available here. The main sections include:
- The gender equality roadmap: an overarching guide outlining six phases of workplace gender equality.
- The gender equality scorecard: a measurement framework detailing 12 key focus areas, mapped to the gender equality indicators, employer of choice criteria, and other business metrics.
- Diagnosis methodology: a systematic process for assessing current performance.
- Guidance on building gender strategies based on the diagnosis phase, including strategy-setting process and change management.
- Guidance on monitoring and improving strategy over time.
Excel tool for conducting the gender equality diagnostic step
The Agency has provided an excel file that can be used in conducting your self-assessment. There is also a briefing note to help you develop a gender equality policy.
