    Make this consistent across the organisation by developing a communications and advocacy campaign on flexible workplace practices.
  4. Extended leave / return to work support plan
    Develop a plan to include agreement on how the employee would like to be engaged while they are on extended leave.
  5. Shadow for a day (or longer)
    Offer employees the opportunity to shadow their supervisor/manager or team leader once a year or more often.
  6. Succession planning
    Continue to progress with identifying successors for roles.
  7. Job advertisements
    Review job ads to ensure gender neutral language is used and ensure transparency around new appointments
  8. Increase networking opportunities
    Make accessible for all employees across the organisation

    Make these actions measurable to track progress
