Modern Corporate Culture and Gender Diversity

Ropemaker Place, 25 Ropemaker Street, London, United Kingdom
18:00 - 21:00 Wednesday, 11 September 2019

Modern Corporate Culture and Gender Diversity

It is now widely accepted that gender balance at board level delivers better business performance. UK companies have made a collective effort to increase gender equality across leadership positions in their organisations and yet, despite increased awareness and progress made across industries, women remain woefully under-represented in senior positions in UK business. 

Our panel of expert speakers will debate whether modern corporate culture facilitates the recognition and development of female leadership skills. What works well and brings UK business closer to bridging the gender gap, and what aspects of corporate culture still need to change to achieve gender diversity in the pipeline to leadership?

Join us for an engaging evening of debate and networking.
