The Women in Economics Network (WEN) invite you to a breakfast event with special guest speaker, Professor Carol Kulik, UniSA. Professor Kulik will discuss the following topic: Gender diversity at the top.
About the speaker
Professor Carol T. Kulik is a Professor of Human Resource Management at the University of South Australia Business School, and a senior researcher within the Centre for Workplace Excellence. Professor Kulik’s research focuses on the effective management of workforce diversity and organisational fairness. Her current projects are investigating strategies for closing the gender gap in salary negotiations, reducing stereotype threat among mature-age workers, and motivating organisations to invest in diversity management. Professor Kulik’s research on gender and diversity has been recognised by a scholarship award from the Academy of Management’s Gender and Diversity in Organizations Division.
About the event
Organisations are under pressure to increase the representation of women in senior management roles and narrow gender salary gaps. Some countries are increasing regulatory requirements that monitor organisations’ gender diversity composition and practices; organisations that fail to display gender diversity may be criticised in the public press. In the face of these pressures, many organisations are stepping up their gender diversity efforts. This burst of activity is generating visible increases in women’s representation in senior management roles, but a closer look highlights hidden inequities and emerging challenges. What will the future look like for businesses embracing gender diversity at the top?
