Male Champions of Change Charter 2011

As Male Champions of Change,
we commit to actively advancing gender equality across our business and to
acting as public advocates. This includes:

Business
leadership

  • Building
    gender equality into the strategy of the company operations, driven by the CEO
    and leadership team.
  • Changing
    workplace culture and mindset and empowering both women and men to advance
    gender equality in the company.
  • Adopting
    and implementing employment policies and practices that eliminate gender
    discrimination in areas such as recruitment, hiring, pay, and
    promotion.
  • Committing
    to increasing women on our boards, executive committee and line
    management.

Recruitment
of talent

  • Recruiting,
    developing and retaining diverse candidates as a priority.
  • Health,
    safety and freedom from violence
  • Prohibiting
    all forms of violence in the workplace, including verbal, physical, or sexual
    harassment.

Work
and family

  • Developing
    mechanisms to foster balance between work and family life for women and
    men.

Public
advocacy

  • Through
    the Male Champions of Change network, sharing experiences and strategies for
    advancing gender equality within Australia’s corporate sector.
  • Creating
    a catalogue of best practices for achieving gender equality.
  • Being
    spokespersons for the promotion of gender equality, both individually and
    collectively.

Build
the CEO Champion network

  • Work
    together to increase the dialogue among our peers–and create peer
    pressure–to build our network of CEO Champions, including a ‘plus
    one’ strategy for next year’s Women’s Forum (each CEO to bring
    one or more of their
    peers).
