So if gender diversity is such a hot topic – why has nothing changed in SA? This is a question my business partner and I found ourselves asking last year. After so many years of companies talking about diversity being important and the promotion of women in business being critical why is it that at Executive and Board levels the numbers have hardly increased over the past 20 years?

I recently read an article about an ‘anti-diversity’ memo from a guy that works at Google. (Titled “Googles Ideological Echo Chamber”). It caused a massive outcry from within Google as well as industry thought leaders. In fact it lead to the firing of senior software engineer James Damore. On a high level, James stated that Google is weakening its own organization by driving conservatives (like him) away and Google has therefore created discriminatory practices in order achieve a more equal gender and race representation. James had his say around ‘psychological differences’ between men and woman and paid the price by losing his job for implying that policies aimed at driving gender and racial change create discrimination towards him.

In the words of Stanley Slap, headline speaker, "I want attendees to experience epiphany after epiphany from the Clarkhouse Human Capital Day on Diversity. I want people to go wow – that was an experience! But not only that, I want to talk practically and tactically so that they leave with action steps to build a great culture and improve their organisations.”
