More Powerful Together, the theme of International Women’s Day this year in Australia, is prompting Nous Group to celebrate our achievements in gender equity while also looking out for ways we can improve.
To mark IWD, we would like to take the opportunity to profile some of the exceptional women at Nous to honour their amazing achievements in bringing about positive change – whether through Nous or individually.
Of the 350 Nousers around Australia and the United Kingdom, 62 per cent are women, while among our leadership team, 47 per cent are women. This represents one of the highest proportions of female leadership in a consulting firm and demonstrates the outcome of our efforts to create the right conditions for diversity.
Tim Orton, Managing Director of Nous Group, said that Nous had always strived to help all people achieve their full potential, so it was pleasing that Nous was maintaining results on involvement among women.
“I wish everyone a happy International Women’s Day and encourage people to think about how they can be More Powerful Together.
“At Nous we have always sought to create a welcoming work environment for everyone. It is not enough simply to seek gender equity during the recruitment phase if we do not also think about what experience our people will have when they are at work. That is why we have taken a holistic approach that looks at everything we do and asks, does it work for everyone?”
Nous has taken several innovative steps to create a gender-equal work environment:
Sally Pritchard, Chief People Officer at Nous Group, said gender equity, like all diversity, is important at Nous, because it brought diversity of thinking, perspective and style.
“By drawing on diversity we think more boldly and are more interesting and engaging as an organisation,” she said. “This allows us to not only be a great place to work but to deliver on our value proposition for clients.”
