At Seven we take advantage of the significant opportunities presented by having a diverse workforce and have continued to strive to reflect and embed this in our growing business.
One key focus has been gender diversity and we now have a number of initiatives in place. Including review of salary packages to ensure equality by role and a paid internship program where we have three of the Matildas (Australia’s National Women’s Football team) now studying project management with us.
But at the end of the day, there does appear to be an under-representation of women in Program Delivery across the marketplace as a whole. This appears even more pronounced in senior Program Director roles. It’s fine to some extent to say we reflect the market, but the better question is how can we change the market?
With this in mind, Seven has developed the Pathways Series, which provides an opportunity for women to connect with peers and discuss insights into their careers, their organisations and challenges they have encountered along the way. Pathways covers a diverse range of topics such as change management, agile delivery, dealing with difficult stakeholders, power and influence and career development. The series encourages networking, the sharing of ideas and the promotion of inclusivity and equality.
