Women 1st launches diversity guide

A new guide has been launched for employers to support women in the workplace and increase the number of women working in senior positions across the service industry.

Women 1st has published ‘The Little Book of Diversity’, including advice for businesses and case studies of companies successfully championing gender diversity.

Sharon Glancy, founder of Women 1st and co-author of the book, said:  “The guide is aimed at both HR professionals and business leaders.  It is designed to help you wherever you are on your journey to achieving gender balance within senior management teams, whether you are starting out or looking for ideas to improve your own programmes.  We hope we can inspire, encourage and equip you to take action in your own business.

“It has been developed with the help of many successful men and women working across lots of different types of businesses and I would like to thank everyone for sharing their knowledge and providing guidance.”

Women 1st runs leadership training and mentoring programmes for women working in the hospitality, travel and tourism and passenger transport industries.
