Men maintaining momentum
It is undeniable: the role of the men in this movement – within the automotive industry and every other - is crucial.
The advancement of women in any environment is hindered if not completely derailed when considered as being at the expense of men. In fact, those who identify as men play an equal role in the success of this movement and the benefits of gender diversity are unachievable without them and their genuine buy-in.
Harvard Business Review have released an incredibly insightful piece titled 'How men can become better allies to women'. It states that “Evidence shows that when men are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organisations see progress – compared to only 30% of organisations when men are not engaged.” They continue, “Without the avid support of men, often the most powerful stakeholders in most large corporations, significant progress toward ending gender disparities is unlikely.”
Not only is male inclusion helpful to progress, it’s pivotal.
The roadmap for Carparison
Here at Carparison, we are committed to doing the best by our employees and giving equal representation, opportunity and reason for engagement. We’re prepared for this to require constant scrutiny, involvement and evolution and don’t intend to take our foot off the accelerator.
However, our successes in gender diversity shouldn’t and doesn’t cover over other areas of representation in which we hope, and need, to improve.
We’re proud of where we are, but certainly haven’t lost sight of where we’re going.
