Addressing GENDER INEQUALITY in the workplace Half-Day Seminar

INFORMATION

21 June 2018
VENUE:Ten Bompass Design Hotel, Johannesburg


Gender inequality in the workplace is a challenge for South Africa and the world at large. This phenomenon affects both males and females, however too often, gender equity is seen as a feminist issue. South African Labour Market is not moving forward in terms of gender equality; despite the considerable progress in legislation that has been made towards achieving gender equity in the workplace.

Join KR at this half day seminar to discuss ways in which we can deal with gender inequality on the workplace on the 21st June 2018.

WELCOME & INTRODUCTIONS


08:30–09:15

Equal pay for equal work: Addressing the gender pay gap

In most organisations male and female employees do not climb equally on the ladder of opportunities and there pay disparities between male and female employees is still a massive problem.  All things being equal, men and women should be able to reach as high as possible, given their skills and performance and be remunerated equally.


09:15–10:00

Tackling sexual harassment: How to deal with claims of sexual harassment in the workplace

Sexual harassment in the workplace is not a new phenomenon, it has been occurring for years – people have just been too afraid to speak up. The #MeToo is one of the initiatives that helped demonstrate the prevalence of sexual harassment. Through this campaign many cases of sexual harassment resurfaced. Sexual harassment can affect productivity if it’s not managed properly. Every employer (regardless of size) should maintain a workplace that is free of sexual harassment. This session will address issues around sexual harassment in the workplace and ways to deal with sexual harassment claims.


10:00 – 10:30 MORNING TEA BREAK

10:30 – 11:15

Women on top

Research by World Economic Forum (WEF) found that women represent fewer than 50% of leaders in every industry analysed - and in some fields, such as energy and mining or manufacturing, the representation of women is far lower, with women holding less than 20% of leadership positions.
In South Africa, only 31% of women fill up senior positions in the public sector and only 21% in the private sector. Gender equality is a part of our constitution, which advocates for half of the decision-making positions to be held by women

11:15- 12:00

Panel discussion: Curbing gender inequality in the workplace and society

SETA grants and accreditation requirements
Many of our delegates enquire about the accreditation of our events. There is a misconception that organisations qualify for SETA grants only for accredited programmes. This is not correct. The payment of SETA grants is regulated by the Government Gazette, no. 9867, Vol. 570, 3 December 2012, no. 35940. These Regulations clearly state that the SETAs “must allocate a mandatory grant to a levy paying employer” that has submitted a WSP and ATR by the regulated date, has provided all the information required in the regulated template, and is up to date with skills levy payments. Furthermore, the template in the Regulations (Section C: Skills Development) allows employers to include ALL planned training in the report; not only accredited programmes.
