What one action would you like to see organisations, or the government take to drive gender equity?

I am a great believer in “Inspect what you Expect”, so organisation (and government) should create inclusive frameworks for work and society built on education, fairness and accountability for when these frameworks are not upheld with meaningful consequences.
