Creating Gender Equality Through Procurement - TOOLKIT
Femeconomy has partnered with The 30% Club and leading Australian Board Directors to develop a Gender Equality Procurement Toolkit, to support organisations to implement procurement strategies that create gender equality across their supply chains, and foster ethical supply practices.
Putting in place and communicating supplier diversity and gender equality programs externally builds trust both with local communities, and with stakeholders more broadly, as organisations are increasingly held to account for their social impact.
Corporate Directors and CEOs are operating in environments of increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
Increased diversity of thought, leadership and decision making is required to confront escalating stakeholder demands for social license to operate and sustainable gender equality improvements. Recent legislative changes reflect growing community expectations that organisational supply chains are ethical, transparent and inclusive.
Workplace Gender Equality Agency has updated its 2020-2021 Employer of Choice Citation criteria which includes measures of gender responsive procurement.
