CEO Brief to Promote Inclusive Leadership and Gender Equality in Vietnam

CEO Brief to Promote Inclusive Leadership and Gender Equality in Vietnam is a collaboration between Investing in Women (IW), the Australian Government, the Vietnam Business Coalition for Women’s Empowerment (VBCWE), Lightpath Leadership, and Wardhaven Capital Ltd designed as a resource “from executives for executives”. It uses real-life examples and covers the WHY and WHAT of inclusive leadership.  

The brief explains that inclusive leadership and gender equality could lead to greater profitability, innovation and value creation, and leverage human capital. It also determines easy first steps that CEOs can implement quickly and cost-effectively. These include: 

  • Introducing balanced interview panels;
  • Providing flexible working options;
  • Encouraging language in the workplace that makes employees feel safe and welcomed;
  • Setting and measuring gender targets; and
  • Promoting and championing role models. 

The brief also enumerates the seven key drivers of change to achieve workplace gender equality (WGE) as determined by IW. These drivers stand as a guide for firms to achieve WGE, but the factors required to bring about organizational culture change to achieve WGE are contextual and will vary between firms. 

 

This CEO brief was originally published on the VBCWE website.
