Gender Quotas DebatePosted in : D&I Discussion Forum on 1 September 2020
The Diversity & Inclusion Forum returns again for its first debate with two passionate feminists with very different views on gender quotas in the workplace. Neasa Hunter (Director, Q Solutions) who will go head to head with Virginia Mendez (author, founder of the Feminist Shop and international speaker).
For so long many people have been saying that quotas are the only way to redress the major gender imbalance we have in the Irish workplace especially in senior positions. But quotas are highly contentious and could be very unwelcome in a recession. This debate gives you the opportunity to weigh-up in a short period of time the pros and cons and then declare your position in the form of a poll.
