Best Solutions to the Gender Gap by PwC!

Must read. I just saw the new report on gender equality published by PwC. Its called Time to Talk: What Has to Change for Women at Work. It suggests three actions: Transparency around pay and promotion; Strategic support for women including sponsoring women; and a new model for work-life balance that includes parenting time, re-entry programs and stigma free flexible hours. Fantastic! Here is one quote: [The gender gap] is a systemic issue that cannot be attributed to individual circumstances it is endemic to organisational structures, cultures and practices. I say exactly this this in both my book (Lean Out) and in my TEDx talk!
