Case Study: Mind the Gap: Balancing Attraction in Gender-Dominated Industries Successful Strategies Kerry is Using to Attract, Retain and Advance Women

Women account for over half the workforce (57% in 2020). However, in industries, such as manufacturing, there's still a significant gender gap that needs to be overcome. Only 1 out of every 3 workers in manufacturing identify as female, and fewer still are appointed to manufacturing leadership roles (1:4). As employers, we know the important contributions women bring to the workplace. Join us, as we look closer at Kerry as a case-study backdrop to explore: 

  • Women's perceptions of recruiting and career potential in male-dominated fields

  • Factors suppressing equal representation in the workforce

  • Strategies Kerry used to help attract and recruit women 

  • Learnings & outcomes of Kerry's recruitment inclusion initiatives
