How many people to implement a gender equity plan – at least five people

I have written a proposed resourcing plan detailing some of the typical duties for these five specialist practitioners – including one who has specialised diversity data literacy (including pay equity analysis).  This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, and you may add more duties that apply to your own plans.  I have also suggested some additional costs – you get what you pay for, after all.

Globalisation has awakened us to the reality of the heterogeneous composition of our societies. As the developed world tries to shift global attention to “saving the planet”, this piece argues that it is vital to encourage intercultural understanding. Only this will create the peaceful environment necessary for people to collaborate instead of fight each other.
