Join us to find out about the top tips for managers recruiting virtually
Most managers consider their recruitment practices to be fair but CMI research (2018) suggests that many businesses have not adopted recognised practices for ensuring a fair and gender-balanced recruitment process. As the first step in the employment cycle, recruitment is critically important for employers aiming at a gender-balanced workforce.
Recently, CMI published a new, practical guide: Moving the Dial on Race. It combines personal stories from the CMI community with steps proven to significantly improve workplace inclusion. One of the six steps we ask of all managers includes re-examining recruitment and promotion processes to ensure they are free from unconscious bias and that shortlists are balanced.
In this webinar, Kate Grussing CMgr CCMI, Managing Director, Sapphire Partners, will discuss ways of supporting managers to focus on inclusive recruitment amid the current Covid crisis and also ways in which organisations can attract and recruit more diverse talent.

Communicate. Be Empowered. Make a Difference.
Women often are told (or feel) that they are too direct, aggressive, passive, lack confidence and need to speak up more in meetings. How do we avoid these labels and stereotypes in order to feel empowered, confident and be considered equal leaders in our organizations? Communication is key! The Women Empowerment Series will make you aware of your linguistic and communication styles and explore components to build confidence to empower you to make a difference within your organization.
In a series of three, 75-minute workshops (Dec. 3, 10 & 17) with plenty of time for great discussions and break-outs, women will explore their individual communication style and build an understanding of gender stereotypes and how these negatively impact workplace relationships. Non-verbal communication, body language and managing emotion will be discussed to propel our conversations forward and participants will delve into conversation rituals; a re-occurring pattern of conversation and behavior whose meaning, or function is not what it appears to be. By adapting linguistic styles to certain situations, understanding queen bee and imposter syndrome and being more aware of behavior that exists through rituals, women will be prepared to reclaim power, confidence and control in conversations and demonstrate their competence and credibility.
Women communicate a certain way, whether through learned behavior at a young age or through societal influences. Being aware of hidden nuances in conversations and learning to understand and adapt to different communication styles will empower women with communication tools that help them navigate and succeed in the workplace.
• Linguistic and Communication Styles
• Gender Stereotypes

No two women experience disempowerment in the same way. Black women, indigenous women, women from poorer backgrounds, trans women – they experience different challenges tied to their
Black women, indigenous women, women from poorer backgrounds, trans women – they experience different challenges tied to their different identities. It follows that empowering them will require different kinds of interventions and different kinds of change.
We speak to three successful entrepreneurs, Christelle Kwizera, Alison Price and Leah Lizarondo, who have not only founded entrepreneurial businesses in male-dominated fields but are also using their work to tackle climate change and sustainability issues. We ask them how they navigated their way through these challenges to come out on top.
Co-hosting the event with Bridget Kustin is Amanda Ellis, co-chair of the WE Empower United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Challenge. Christelle, Alison and Leah have been recognised for their achievements by WE Empower who run a global business competition to honour, support and celebrate women entrepreneurs who are advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and inspiring communities to create the world we want by 2030.

Women are at the forefront of the Covid-19 response, including at the front line in health services, caregivers at home and engagement with communities. In contrast, women’s
In contrast, women’s representation in policy development and decision making on the pandemic is dangerously limited; after the Covid-19 outbreak in Uganda task-forces were established across the country to steer the prevention and response to the pandemic. However on average women make up only 22.5% of task-force members and men hold the most influential positions.
Women’s International Peace Centre with the support of Womankind Worldwide and Gender Action for Peace and Security (GAPS) has undertaken research in Uganda to enable the International Community to better understand the global gender, peace and security impacts of COVID-19.
Join us in conversation with Helen Kezie-Nwoha, Executive Director at The Women’s International Peace Centre to hear about how this crucial piece of research is being used to develop policy and programming responses which focus on rebuilding equal and just societies that put the voices of women and women’s organisations at the heart of the COVID-19 recovery process.
We are encouraging attendees to take part in the conversation with time for Q&A.

Mindfulness is the awareness that arises by paying attention on purpose, in the present moment and without
The body scan provides an opportunity to practice noticing, simply by bringing an interested and friendly awareness to the way things are, in each moment however they are and without having to do anything to change things. There is no goal to be achieved. Just to bring awareness to aspects of our experience as the guidance suggests.
