How does your workplace embrace equality?
As the CEO and Founder of CorporatEdge, I strongly believe in promoting equality and diversity in the workplace. We have a zero-tolerance policy for any form of discrimination, harassment, or bias based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or any other personal characteristic.
We ensure that all our hiring and promotion decisions are based solely on merit and skills, and we actively seek to promote a culture of inclusion where everyone feels valued and respected.
In addition, we offer equal opportunities for learning and development to all our employees, regardless of their background or identity. We encourage open communication and feedback, and we are committed to continuously improving our policies and practices to foster an environment that is welcoming and supportive for all.
As a woman, how do you make sure that you embrace equality?
I believe that embracing equality is not only a matter of gender, but also a matter of mindset and values. As a woman and a leader, I strive to create a workplace that values diversity and inclusivity, where everyone is given an equal opportunity to grow and succeed. I make sure to lead by example, by treating everyone with respect and fairness, and by promoting a culture that celebrates differences and encourages collaboration. I also make it a point to listen to the voices of women and minorities, and to create policies and programs that address their unique needs and challenges. Ultimately, I believe that true equality can only be achieved through a collective effort, where everyone plays their part in creating a more equitable and just society.
When you are the decision maker how do you make sure you are not gender biased?
As a decision maker, I believe in ensuring that all decisions are made based on merit and qualifications, without any bias towards gender or any other factors that are not relevant to the decision at hand. To avoid gender bias, I make sure that there is diversity in the decision-making team, including both men and women, and that each individual’s input is given equal weight. I also take the time to analyze and reflect on my own biases and work to actively overcome them. Additionally, I ensure that there are clear and objective criteria for evaluating decisions, and that these criteria are communicated clearly to all involved parties.
Do you believe that gender inclusive policies are justified with an increasing number of women in the industry while still not being a 50% strength or close?
Gender inclusive policies are crucial to promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and they can benefit not only women but also the organization. Even with an increasing number of women in the industry, there is still a gender gap in certain sectors and leadership positions. Gender inclusive policies aim to remove these barriers and create a more level playing field for everyone.
