Developing gender sensitivity in the workplace will be the topic of FORE School of Management, New Delhi’s June Management Development Program (MDP), slated to be held on the 20th and 21st of June 2013. Around the world, companies are recognising the need for gender parity, but it means more than just equal pay for equal work. It means developing sensitivity to gender-related issues – having an awareness of the needs, aspirations, abilities and professional value of workers, without any gender prejudice.
The objective of this MDP at FORE is to teach the importance of gender sensitivity in the workplace and show what a company can do to develop it.
Designed for senior executives and managers of large public and private sector organisations, MNCs, banks, financial institutions and other institutions, the MDP will focus on: strategic perspectives on gender diversity, significance of gender sensitivity in the workplace, gender issues at work, sex-role stereotypes and their impact on decision making, gender discrimination at work, dealing with sexual harassment and measures to enhance gender sensitivity.
In addition to lectures, the MDP will feature role playing, group discussions, case studies, self-assessment sessions and psychometric tests.
Prof. Sanghamitra Buddhapriya, the programme director, has more than 16 years of experience and conducts training programmes on organisational behaviour and human resource management issues such as work and life balance; life and career planning for female executives; leadership and team building; enhancing interpersonal skills; coaching and mentoring, and strategic human resource management.
