2017 Gender Equality Challenge Practices

The 2017 Gender Equality Challenge Forum practices are listed below. This year, there are two classifications of practices.

Model Practices are strong, well-established practices that impact a large number of women, demonstrated by real measurable results and strong testimonials with significant investment from senior leaders. These practices are modeled in a way that can be replicated to another workplace.

Promising Practices demonstrate positive impact through strong testimonials or innovative approaches, but either lack measurable results or have not effectively reached a significant number of women yet.

Whether practices are classified as Promising or Model, it does not diminish the commitment and impressive measures that San Francisco Bay Area employers are implementing in their efforts to change workplace culture and advance women in the workplace. This presentation of Gender Equality Practices and the coordination of the Challenge Forum is an effort of both the public and private sector to generate healthy conversations, challenging everyone to do more to promote gender equity and diversity of talent, skills, and abilities.
