Equity can truly begin once we’ve taken a look inward through the lens of equity
When we are first fair to ourselves, we can challenge inequities in our workplaces and beyond—breaking down bias and moving toward equal.
Gild Collective changes individual views and behaviors to shift workplace cultures and break down gender barriers. Through thoughtfully designed leadership workshops and gender inclusion trainings Gild Collective facilitators focus on closing the leadership development gap for women and creating an inclusive environment for underrepresented talent to thrive.
Gild Collective's 2023 special IWD topic is Practicing Equity: Identify, Plan, Model
2023 is all about equity—the quality of being “fair.” This year’s International Women’s Day theme, #EmbraceEquity, encourages everyone to “do their part in creating a fair and equal world within their sphere of influence.” We believe that the process of equity can only truly begin once we’ve taken a look inward through the lens of equity. What biases have we internalized and how do they hold us back? How can we define our own unique needs and seek support to satisfy each one? From there, we are better equipped to model equity as a process and advocate for others through allyship. When we are first fair to ourselves, we can challenge inequities in our workplaces and beyond—breaking down bias and moving toward equal.
Identify: Understanding the difference between equity and equality in the context of the International Women’s Day theme #EmbraceEquity
Plan: Creating a personal equitable resource plan—identifying your unique needs and developing a plan to gain resources and ask for support
Model: Recognizing opportunities to model and advocate equity for others through allyship
In the month of March, a 1.5-hour Practicing Equity session will be offered for $2,500 (usually $3,000).
With a longer session of 2-4 hours, we will dive deeper on further action for modeling and allyship.
