Breaking Biases, Building Culture

We all have stories to tell—but as women, we’re either too afraid, don’t get the chance to, or worse, our stories are told by others who don’t understand us.

Goodera is proud to be part of the changing narrative of storytelling where women don’t care about fitting into glass slippers, but are steadfastly shattering the glass ceiling to own #HerStory.

Building gender-inclusive workspaces
The COVID-19 crisis has driven as many as 2 million women - particularly mothers with young children - to consider leaving the workforce or stepping back from their careers.
There is also a disconnect between companies’ growing commitment to racial equity and the lack of improvement we see in the day-to-day experiences of women of color.
While companies are more diverse than ever, many organizations are yet to cultivate inclusive work environments in an effective and consistent manner.
The Webinar focuses on four key aspects
  • How can companies make more concerted efforts to ensure gender parity, fairness and openness?
  • While equity is an obvious business imperative, what can be done about it is much less obvious. How can companies lessen COVID-19’s impact on women—particularly mothers, senior women, and women of color?
  • Instead of trying to change some people to fit the organization, how can organizations focus on transforming their workspaces to fit all people?
  • How can volunteering support to drive intentions to actions at workplaces?
Meet your team of inspirational leaders who have carried forward the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., by fostering a spirit of equality and openness within their organizations.
