Clicks and Gender Diversity
We are thought leaders for gender diversity in IT recruitment. Clicks is an Alliance Partner, and only recruiter, with the #TechDiversity Foundation, Australia’s leading industry alliance committed to amplifying diversity awareness and achieving a culture of inclusion, through conversation, collaboration and action.
Each year Clicks runs a series of public and company-specific workshops for senior decision makers around Australia, accompanying our annual Gender Diversity in the Australian IT Marker Report.The workshops and report educate attendees on the current market, coach on the profile and needs of IT job seeker who are women, and provide a series of practical suggestions that can be easily implemented with immediate benefit.
We will explore and highlight flexible work options when taking a job brief, pushing back on position descriptions that are male-centric, requesting gender-balanced interview panels, addressing unconscious gender bias and more. We are cognisant of utilising non-gender specific language when writing job advertisements, and work hard to represent women who are returning to the workforce after parental leave.
