Who’s responsible for gender equality?

This week on The GoodPractice Podcast, we’re revisiting inclusion with a focus on gender. How do we understand the phrase ‘gender gap’ and what can be done to make equality a feature of our organisations?

Ross Garner and Cat MacLeod from the GoodPractice team are joined by Emerald Publishing CEO Vicky Williams and AoEC CEO Gina Lodge to discuss.
