Sponsorship and Its Effects on Workplace Gender Equality PT Vale Indonesia and PT Adis Dimensions Footwea
The Case Study: Sponsorship and Its Effects on Workplace Gender Equality - PT Vale Indonesia and PT Adis Dimensions Footwear examines the influence of sponsorship programs on gender equality in the workplace. Through four in-depth interviews with key persons including sponsors, sponsees, HR personnel, and International Business Coalition for Women Empowerment (IBCWE) staff conducted between May and July 2022, this study investigates the value of sponsorship programs in linking, advocating and promoting women to leadership positions within organizations. The two companies explored in this case study are Vale Indonesia and Adis Dimensions Footwear – both of which have implemented various forms of sponsorship initiatives to help advance women into top-level positions.
The findings suggest that effective sponsorship programs can be successful in creating an environment of gender equality within an organisation. It was noted that these programs tend to be more effective when they are tailored to meet the individual needs of each company’s culture rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all approach. This is especially important for companies whose cultures may not traditionally support gender diversity or might otherwise have strong biases against it.
Additionally, the study suggests that organisations must make sure that their mentorship and promotional systems are not limited only to men or any other privileged group; rather they should provide equal opportunity for all employees who demonstrate potential regardless of gender identity or background.
Moreover, sponsorship programs can also serve as invaluable tools for increasing the visibility of female leaders within an organization. This increases the chances of women being selected for top executive roles as well as being able to access valuable networks and resources that could benefit them professionally. In addition to providing a platform for collaboration between male and female leaders within a company, such initiatives also create opportunities for dialogue about workplace discrimination and corporate policies related to gender equality both internally and externally – helping ensure that there is a commitment from all stakeholders towards achieving a truly inclusive work environment across the company’s operations.
