How is Gender Diversity within Business Services Being Embraced?

This question is one many corporate leaders have been asking themselves over the past year. Spurred on by the exposure of shameful practices and pay inequality that are snowballing across the global business landscape, the issue of diversity and inclusion has been given a much-needed shot in the arm.

Against this backdrop, SSO Week Event Director Hannah Reeve, and I recently hosted an online discussion on how shared services organisations are handling diversity. While the obvious reaction is to adopt a ‘women’ moniker and analyse workforce demographics and management representation on the basis of gender, the real issue at stake, as it emerged, is bigger than this.

Including: A break down of gender across all Shared Services roles, and an analysis of gender ratios across leadership positions.
