Gender Equality

We have the expertise and the tools required to support you to ask the tough questions, and to deal proactively with even the most unpalatable answers.

While the business case for increasing the proportion of women in leadership roles is well-established, in the vast majority of Australian workplaces, progress towards gender equality has been slow. The complexities and sensitivities inherent in tackling gender issues means that tough questions frequently remain unasked, and barriers to equality remain unaddressed.

At Leed Consulting, we have the expertise and the tools required to support you to ask the tough questions, and to deal proactively with even the most unpalatable answers. Working at the individual, team and organisational level, we seek to uncover both the conscious and unconscious dynamics underlying organisational culture and behaviour.

As the exclusive Australian licensee of the Rutherford Gender Cultural Audit, our commitment to building greater gender equality in South Australian workplaces is well established. Through our use of this tool we support you to examine deeply your existing organisational culture and the ways in which it defines and creates leaders; and in particular, the policies, practices, assumptions, beliefs and unconscious biases that may make gender a limiting factor in your organisation.

Once we have a clear picture of the key challenges, constraints, advantages and opportunities facing your business on the path to an inclusive culture, we collaborate with you to develop a strategy that creates a culture of inclusion: a culture that improves your employee engagement, client experience and business performance.

Our Directors are also the only South Australians accredited in the use of the Psynapse Unconscious Cognition Assessments, which means we’re well equipped to help organisations connect their cultural aspirations with the individual’s understanding of his or her psychological processes.

For those organisations seeking targeted solutions to increase the representation of women at senior levels, we offer:
