CTO Labs Jane Evans shared some thoughts with TechDay Australia as we acknowledge International Womens Day, wth the theme of Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress.

She celebrates some of the people making a tangible difference with real action and change towards a more equitable world, and also the value in doing so:

Like Adamantem Capital who now include analysis of indicators of inclusion and diversity as part of their investment due diligence process, as a marker of employee engagement and workplace culture.

Once companies enter their portfolio, Adamantem also supports those companies to create more inclusive and diverse workplaces, eg in 2022, they increased the percentage of female CEOs in portfolio companies from 22.2% to 55.6.%.

"As we start to scale at CTO Labs, where our focus is technology due diligence for investors and private equity firms, we are prioritising gender balance and pay parity where we can. ... we’ve put processes in place to deliberately consider gender diversity in our hiring and HR practices, alongside a flexible and inclusive workplace culture. That makes it a culture worth investing individual professional capital in." Jane said.
