There's no debate about it; women in business still face many hurdles. But it's time to go beyond talk and focus on implementing policies that create change. How? We must learn from companies taking steps towards gender equality. This isn't just about male/female ratio. Gender parity in the workplace involves training, mentorship, and thoughtful policymaking for fair pay and parental leave. This discussion will arm the C-suite, team leaders, and HR with a roadmap for creating an environment where all employees thrive.

--What are tips for tracking progress when it comes to gender diversity?
