Capital Human helps our clients to understand the business case for gender equity and social inclusion (GESI) and provides support to make a comprehensive and systemic shift to realise the full opportunities and benefits GESI has to offer.
We support organisations to define and achieve their GESI goals in service to overall organisational strategy and success, focussing on goals that will materially shift the organisations performance through practical, tailored and measurable actions.
GESI outcomes may include:
This offering includes an organisation-wide initial assessment to understand the current state of GESI within the organisation. Adopting a sentiment-analysis approach, this can include self-assessment scorecards, systems diagnostics, policies and procedures reviews, surveys and interviews and team workshops.
While concurrently working with leadership to determine an organisational GESI vision statement and goals, the findings from this review will inform a tailored GESI Strategy and Action Plan to drive the desired change and impact.
Guided by the findings from the initial assessment, we leverage our deep sector expertise to identify practical strategies to make sustainable progress towards short-term and long-term GESI goals.
A detailed action plan is created to guide implementation, measurement, evaluation and reporting to key stakeholders.
We provide guidance and collaborate to effectively implement the plan, as required, through the provision of tools, templates, resources, training and necessary support. We employ a combination of emerging and proven practices to drive sustainable progress.
Working alongside existing data collection and reporting processes, we develop processes for collecting, analysing and reporting on initiative progress, including developing relevant metrics and benchmarks, collecting qualitative and quantitative data and identifying learnings to refine the organisation’s action plan.
Capital Human supports the financial services industry to make firms and their investment processes more inclusive and to use the power of capital to influence the overall financial services sector to achieve better social and environmental outcomes.
Our clients are funders, investors, asset owners and managers, from across the impact spectrum. We advise our clients on how to adopt gender lens investing (GLI) to improve operational and investment performance, uncover investment opportunities and reduce risks while contributing positively to gender and racial equity, diversity and inclusion outcomes.
The business case for diversity and inclusion is clear with an increasing number of studies showing higher gender and racial diversity is correlated with better business performance.
We uncover the risks of overlooking GESI and identify future trends that will impact our client's governance and operations, and design with this in mind. Applying our 3i framework, and a combination of proven and emerging practices, we help our clients to make a comprehensive and systemic shift in their approach to gender equity and social inclusion to better manage risks and capitalise on future opportunities regarding trends in:
We work with our clients to embed GESI within company governance structures, policies, people and processes, and to develop meaningful and practical metrics, targets and strategies to achieve them.
We help clients to consider GESI within their overarching investment strategy, due diligence processes and in post-investment support, review and analysis, adding value to their investment processes from a financial risk and
return and impact perspective.
We assist clients to use their influence to achieve gender and racial equity beyond their own core work, impacting the wider industry and systems they operate within.
We leverage our deep sector expertise to advise businesses, not-for-profits and government on how to integrate, improve and measure social impact in a practical and effective way.
Our experience lies in:
We draw on our global experience and local networks to provide context specific advice to articulate impact goals and outcomes, develop a sound theory of change and design strategies to create sustainable impact.
We collaborate to create tailored impact measurement frameworks, enabling systematic data collection, evaluation, analysis and reporting to continually understand the effectiveness of impact initiatives.
