Why gender inequalities and biases still exist in the Irish workplace

Dec 17, 2018, 11:44 AM

Why does there continue to be a deep-rooted inequality in Ireland preventing the rise of more women to top positions in management?

Professor Carol Kulik of the University of South Australia was a guest speaker on gender diversity organised by the HR Research Centre at University College Cork in September, when she gave insights into Australia's experience and what Ireland can do to remedy its own situation.

This week's episode of Insights: the CUBS podcast, has some of the key points from Carol's presentation where she warned of 'gender fatigue' in organisations.

She also highlighted the need for a more top-down approach with the appointment of women to executive board positions leading to an immediate positive impact in the feeder group to these highest-level positions.
