Public reporting shows to your investors, employees and customers that you hold yourself accountable and that you are taking responsibility. Being open and honest about your challenges is also the best way to understand where your gaps are so as to inform action. Soon, transparency will no longer be an option. 

In 2014, the EU Parliament made reporting on social, environmental and diversity matters a legal requirement for large companies.1 A more gender-balanced workforce is critical to employee engagement, productivity and brand reputation. It is thus crucial for organisations to publicly disclose information on their diversity data and policies, if they are ever to meet this objective.
