Discussing how HR can support the transition to hybrid working, and the profound impact this will have for gender equity, Virginia shares her vast experience supporting business to create flexible and inclusive work cultures.
Virginia invites us to consider the part we can play in our own lives, recognising where we can role model and make small changes that together create big impacts.
Advocating for the use of data above opinion, Virginia explains why data is a powerful tool, and, for example, for working parent retention, the importance of ensuring data sets include men.
Here’s a snapshot of a few things we talked about:
[3:36] Setting up How Do You Do It - at a time when support for working parents was not strong, and working fathers were barely considered
[5:20] Making hybrid working a norm – a game changer for working parents and gender equity
[10:20] The position of power that you have, the part you play and role modelling
[17:12] The importance of data, in particular building good data for men’s experience
[23:05] Becoming data led not opinion led; speak from the statistics of what your people are doing
