Reducing Gender Gap in the Workplace Through Better Internal Communication

Communication gap

Stylistic distinctions

Healthy foundation

  • Language: always use gender-neutral terminology;
  • Inclusion: make sure that everyone has their say, particularly in meetings and collaborative situations; don’t tailor specific solutions for specific segments of employees, even when they are well-intentioned;
  • Acknowledgment: encourage clear ownership of responsibilities for a truthful acknowledgment of individual efforts;
  • Common goals: motivating employees to rally around and collaborate towards achieving shared goals is the best way to make everyone feel involved and included.
  • Feedback: provide the employees with a platform to voice their opinion and be prepared to listen.
