GENDER EQUITY in [HUMAN] CIRCULAR ECONOMY
New Human inclusive model for circular economy enables gender equity effectiveness by applying self-regenerative principles of human nature
From the point of view of human circularity, to utilize self-regenrative cycles and rhythms in human, would be more efficient and constructive for team collaboration process and team productivity, as well as for (personal) leadership, and family-life-work-community-nature balance.
The Matrix-Q Akademia offers circular economy capacity building for leaders. Our focus is thinking and behavior change, to enable circular thinking and circular innovation competences in leaders.
For 300 years the world industry has been misguided by linear thinking, creating waste, climate change and the extinction of millions of species.
It is time to change. The transition into circular economy is not limited to change of technology, technique and design, but involve also social innovation and systemic change, for which capacity building, leadership and behavior change play key roles.
For the 3 years work-study program of the Matrix-Q Akademia, we have set an impact indicator, on genderequity effectiveness: our students should develop communication and collaboration skills that up-level their performance and effectiveness at team work, in gender diverse and gender equity teams.
Starting within the learning program, we have planned that 50% of our students to be men and 50% women. Though a gender equity approach, we will challenge and boost new competences in men and women that are essential for gender equity effectiveness.
