Building Balance

Welcome to Building Balance, a network and mentoring scheme which focuses on addressing the gender imbalance across the public sector. We want to see a better gender balance at more senior levels. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by bringing together those in senior-level positions with those at a junior level, with the aim of developing a pipeline of women with a pathway to senior-level roles.

Building Balance will provide a mentoring scheme, by aligning senior professionals with aspiring junior women in the public sector, whilst also providing a platform to share stories of success.

Goodman Masson has been committed to sharing industry-specific gender insights with senior women across the public sector for several years. This has led to organic discussions around the gaps in gender parity in the markets that we operate in. From these discussions, our mentoring network “Building Balance” was born. We believe this is a fantastic platform for us to connect and support women across our client and candidate base.
