Broken Windows shines a light on the smaller, discriminatory and sometimes accidental behaviours that continue to exist in our culture and contribute to gender inequality.

Our latest research charts employers’ current approaches to achieving gender balance and showcases the best-in-class practices that are starting to achieve real change.

But it also reveals the “broken windows” of gender bias that still – for far too many women – mar the reality of work. This can include being talked over in meetings, having their best ideas appropriated, being described as pushy or shrill when they are being decisive or firm, or being objectified.
