The Gender Worx approach is characterised by four core principles: evidence-based, collaborative, change-oriented and strategic.
A rigorous evidence base is fundamental to our work. We focus on turning the evidence from applied research and analysis into practical strategies and tools that build organisational gender diversity capability. Our rigorous organisation-wide survey is based on the best available evidence from Australian and global research. It is supported by a comprehensive white paper which presents the research evidence that supports each survey statement. The survey presents you with the evidence of gender beliefs and perceptions in your organisation. It identifies areas of strength and clarifies where and what the gaps are. A sound measurement basis provides a strong lever for change.
A collaborative mindset underpins our interaction with you. We will ensure we understand your specific challenges and objectives and tailor our survey and our approach to your circumstances. Gender dynamics are sensitive and powerful, and our engagement with you comes from a position of respect and sensitivity to your issues and your needs. All discussions are highly confidential and oriented to your situation.
We bring a strong focus on changing for the better, creating the opportunity for your organisation to make real progress in gender diversity. Your survey report, used in conjunction with the advice from our specialist consultants, will identify the levers that will give you the greatest change impact.
Your survey results will highlight key strategic leadership, culture, talent and performance challenges from a gender diversity perspective. This provides you with the opportunity to attune your future strategies, targets and goals, calibrating them to achievements and gaps identified in the survey results. Over time, you will be able to measure your progress, and make adjustments to ensure your desired future is achieved.
To achieve sustainable change, our work with you targets unconscious beliefs, because the evidence tells us that they lie at the heart of change. Central to achieving better gender representation is an examination of the gender beliefs and biases underpinning all organisational leadership decisions and behaviour. Beneath the visible layers of gender diversity programs and leadership attitudes and behaviour, it is these unconscious beliefs that govern action. Our work with you makes these beliefs transparent, and offers the opportunity for conscious decisions about which beliefs provide organisational value, and which ones prevent change.
