CMI research shows extent of sex discrimination in the workplace

A report from the Chartered Management Institute A Blueprint for Balance: time to fix the broken windows has found that 85% of women and 80% of men have witnessed gender-discriminatory acts at work. Based on a survey of nearly a thousand managers, the report looked at gender diversity best practices, and found that the majority of organisations are still struggling to make a meaningful difference in achieving a gender-balanced workplace. Just one in four of survey respondents said that their peers and senior leaders ‘actively and visibly champion gender initiatives’. According to the CMI the research shows a clear discrepancy between employers’ intentions and their actions over gender equality.
