    Gender equality in leadership is vital for business growth and sustainability in the global marketplace. In May 2017, The Institute of Leadership & Management undertook focus group research, via a round table debate, which explored how gender equality is understood, what organisations could do to evaluate their capability regarding gender equality and how they could encourage progress. This report outlines the findings of this research and reveals how businesses are talking about and understanding gender equality, and diversity generally, throughout their workforce. Particular focus is given to senior leadership, and strategies that have potential to bring gender equality into the heart of organisational cultures, thereby unlocking further leadership potential.
