Employers Face New Pressures to Act on Gender Diversity, According to White Paper From JBK Associates International

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, New Jersey, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The rules are changing for companies that want to support women in business, according to a new gender diversity white paper from executive search firm JBK Associates International.

The white paper examines gender diversity trends and finds the following: 

  • Employers face new pressures from activist investors, legislators, competitors raising the bar, and diversity dissenters;
  • Frustrations caused by stalled progress and a tightening labor market have made the issue even more combustible;
  • Employers who want recognition as gender diversity champions need to meet new minimum standards in the areas of board representation, pay equity and CEO engagement.

“For years, companies could champion gender diversity by acknowledging the business case and establishing HR programs to help,” says Julie B. Kampf, CEO & Chief Possibilities Officer for JBK Associates International. “Today, the marketplace demands much more, and companies that adapt have an incredible opportunity to position themselves as employers of choice.”
