Today Future Women launches Future Women Academy, a new diversity consulting platform providing strategic resources and on-demand advice for businesses and organisations across Australia.
Launched in partnership with leading diversity consulting firm, Diversity Partners, which has worked with more than 300 organisations including PWC and Rio Tinto, FW Academy will offer a unique combination of expertise and reach for its members.
Founding Director of Future Women, Helen McCabe, said the new consulting platform serves the core of Future Women’s mission which is to facilitate genuine change in the advancement of equality.
“Our goal for the Future Women Academy is to reach the broadest number of companies. With our reach and the expertise of Diversity Partners we can make a genuine difference in the performance of businesses especially where there is a gender diversity or culture issue,” said McCabe. “Dr Katie Spearritt shares very similar values to Future Women especially around the need to engage and support men and encourage genuine change in the workplace.”
The Academy is subscription-based, with both small and large organisations able to sign up for 12 months and receive access to diversity and inclusion resources as well as on-demand advice.
FW Academy co-founder and Diversity Partners CEO, Dr Katie Spearritt, says the content has been designed specifically for business leaders, HR professionals and diversity inclusion managers.
“FW Academy is the first diversity and inclusion online ‘centre of excellence’ for companies in Australia, supported by the team of experienced professionals from Diversity Partners who offer on-demand advice and resources – right when you need it,” says Spearritt.
“It can be overwhelming and time-consuming to find real-impact resources, but FW Academy helps you find the right information faster than ever before. Our best practice toolkits, tip sheets, in-depth articles, insight papers, checklists, questionnaires, how-to leader guides, and on-call advice enable FW Academy members to fast-track their organisation’s diversity and inclusion progress.”
Whether your organisation is starting out, refreshing a diversity and inclusion strategy, or well down the path towards an inclusive culture, FW Academy has resources and information shortcuts to accelerate progress.
