Event Details

Close the Gap is launching its Think Business, Think Equality online self-assessment tool which is designed specifically for small and medium businesses and organisations.

The free online tool enables employers to self-assess their employment practice, and provides tailored advice and guidance on the ways in which their business can benefit from gender diversity.

Delivering workplace equality makes good business sense. Having fair and flexible working practices allows you to attract and retain the best talent, reduce recruitment and training costs, and it makes your business more productive, more innovative, and more profitable.

The new online tool will be launched in Glasgow along with our new Think Business, Think Equality promotional films. You will also be able to hear from a business owner who has used the Think Business, Think Equality tool.

The event will take from 16.00pm - 5.30pm at The Lighthouse, Mitchell Lane, Glasgow, G1 3NU.

Wine and canapés will be available.
