Diversity is on most agendas within companies but still you do not see a lot of change. Equalitypoly is a way to change intentions into actions within a safe environment and experience what results and benefits it can bring. Objective of the game is to have discussions on topics like recruitment, employer branding, company culture, management, career paths, development and of course ROI. This management board game is loosely based on Monopoly but is designed and created by the owner of Superwomen Academy, Wendy Broersen together with Ambition Group.
“What an innovative way to encourage gender balance discussion and a great opportunity to debate on the merits of initiatives implemented to drive proved results.”
Nathalie Charalambous of IHS Markit
Attract, Retain, Develop and ROI
It is no coincidence the areas to achieve diversity are placed on the 4 sides of the board: Attract, Retain, Develop and ROI. Within each of these topics, we created 5 situations where the players make choices which have consequences for their team thus effecting their chances to win the game. The players who have the most balanced team (50-50 m/f), encountered the most situations and gained the most ROI will win the game. Sudden situations, actions of the other players and answering what you would do in certain situations will add or divert women and men to your team.
Why use gamification?
