  • Foster an inclusive and equitable organisational culture
  • Embed accountability for leaders in gender equity
  • Attract and retain more women in under-represented areas (STEMM)
  • Increase the number of women in senior and leadership positions
  • Support women’s careers through training, leadership and development
  • Close the gender pay gap
  • Maintain a flexible workplace culture
