Assessing Gender Intelligence

Monday, April 8, 2013



Barbara Annis & Associates (BAA) has united with QED Consulting to create the online Global Gender Intelligence Assessment (GGIA) tool that, according to BAA, "will raise the bar in helping the workplace to become more gender inclusive." BAA and QED believe that self-assessment is the first step to producing superior skills and interpersonal awareness for employees around the world.

Released in December 2012, the GGIA helps men and women to examine their blind spots and identify opportunities for improvement when it comes to gender and workplace communication. It allows organizations to build and sustain a culture of gender diversity, understanding, and inclusiveness, which in turn creates a competitive advantage over many other companies. The GGIA is based on QED's Global Diversity Survey, another self-discovery tool designed to help people better understand themselves, others, and the world around them.

BAA and QED have expertise in training and gender intelligence and have worked closely with many top corporations to produce leading assessment tools and products. Perhaps their best creation to date, the GGIA is beneficial for employees of all roles and organization levels and is suitable for the private, not-for-profit, government, and academic industries. Further, this cool tool is designed for use globally, across all cultures.
