PHPC has recognised the potential for a community-based solution to address workforce challenges and facilitated a Linking Women and Success workshop in April 2021.
The workshop, which was attended by representatives from across the business community, considered the actions that might be taken individually and collectively to increase female workforce participation, with a view to incorporating aspects of Career Revive into the regional movement, ‘Grow Your Own Griffith’.
To ensure PHPC continues its momentum towards a diverse and inclusive workplace they have appointed a Male Champion of Change from among its Principal team.
The Male Champion of Change will be supported by a KPMG mentor to step up beside female leaders, advancing more diverse women in leadership and champion continued investment in diverse and inclusive workplaces.
Participation in Career Revive has supported PHPC to develop a clear work plan, which has been endorsed by the firms Senior Leadership Team.
PHPC will continue to work with KPMG to develop a Pathways to Success Program, which will provide tailored supports to female staff wishing to return to work following a period of leave.
PHPC will also be focusing on improving the experience of their current workforce through a focus on more inclusive practices which are modelled by leaders and underpinned by robust systems.
