The 100% Project presented this new research in Sydney (previously launched in Melbourne in June). The styles of leadership under review were transactional leadership, transformational leadership and adaptive leadership. Jamie Sims, Director, People Measures, presented an overview of where Australia currently sits in the gender equality world rankings; which told an alarming story!
A summary and extracts from the research showed a clear link between an organisation’s leadership styles and the likelihood of greater gender equality in the leadership team.
Jamie was then joined in a panel discussion by Georgie Dent, author, presenter and contributing editor of Women’s Agenda, and Kevin Moore, Chairman of the recently re-launched Toys R Us, Chairman of CROSSMARK and Now Comms Asia, for an insightful and robust discussion on the reason Australia is falling behind other countries in our quest for gender equality – and what we should be doing about this!
The audience was terrific with strong engagement and challenging questions, which resulted in energetic panel-audience conversations.
