Elevate Peer Circle #1 – Gender Inclusion

Feb 09, 2022

VENUE: Virtual Meeting

TIME: 11:00am - 12:00 noon

The first Elevate Peer Circle of 2022 will be on the topic of Gender Inclusion. It will take place on Wednesday, 9th February from 11am – 12 noon.

Peer circles are designed as safe spaces for detailed conversation on Diversity & Inclusion themes. The aim is to facilitate participants to unpack topics by exploring common questions, pre-conceptions, barriers, objections and so on. They should be thought provoking and honest conversations to help us collectively arrive at practical solutions.

Please note, the discussion will not be recorded and Chatham House Rule will apply.

A conversation around Gender could explore many different areas, for example:

  • Gender Identity
    – What level of awareness is needed beyond cis-gender?
    – What level of awareness/understanding is there of inclusive language related to gender identity/biological gender?
  • A Female issue
    – How do we engage men in discussions on gender diversity?
  • Gender Based Violence and Domestic Abuse
    – What is the role of business?
  • Gender Inclusive Workplaces
    – What are companies doing to ensure parity, inclusive culture?
