Project timeline

After launching the Un_Biased research project on International Women’s Day 2022, the Central District Alliance hosted conversations, workshops and drop-in events with members of the local business community.

Employers are getting better at offering flexible working but I still think there is work to do. Employers need to offer flexible working patterns to support childcare, such as school pick ups etc. This would improve productivity and morale.

Survey Respondent
Aged 40-44

I have benefitted from female mentors who have made me feel less ‘alone’ and have helped me recognise that the strengths I bring are different to the men I have worked with, and in some cases more valuable. I needed this support and confidence to be able to be myself and thrive.

Aged 30-34

These conversations were invaluable in shaping Un_Biased and helping Central District Alliance to identify a series of recommendations that directly respond to the most pressing challenges and barriers to economic participation that women face in the BID footprint.
