The Indonesia Business Coalition for Women’s Empowerment (IBCWE) has published three new case studies showcasing how influential businesses in Indonesia are shifting workplace cultures, practices and policy barriers to achieve workplace gender equality.
The new case studies explore how Telkomtelstra and L’Oréal Indonesia have both successfully implemented flexible workplace arrangements, as well as how Tira Austenite has promoted women’s leadership in the male-dominated steel and gas industry.
The case studies demonstrate how and why these Indonesian business put in place measures to achieve greater workplace gender equality as part of their membership of the IBCWE, and what the results were of these changes including increased employee engagement, productivity, cost efficiency and brand credibility.
Members of the IBCWE believe that advancing gender equality in the workplace and supporting women’s economic empowerment should be a central part of business strategy. The evidence is clear: companies with greater gender equality enjoy higher levels of growth and performance. Empowering and investing in women is good for business, and good for the economy.
Investing in Women works with Business Coalitions in Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar and Vietnam to drive change from the top, with CEOs making concrete commitments to gender equality, such as working towards equal pay, and creating an environment where women have as much opportunity as their male counterparts. They hold themselves accountable by measuring their progress against their commitments.
