Celebrate International Women’s Day!

‘FLEXIBLE WORKING REINFORCES GENDER STEREOTYPES’ – a Debate – in aid of the Young Women’s Trust brought to you by Artemis Coaching.

Are you interested in the 21st century workplace?

The debate will discuss such questions as:

  • should flexible working only be available to those with caring responsibilities?
  • do organisations penalise those who ask for flexible working?
  • does flexible working mean you seem “unreliable”?
  • should working mothers avoid asking for flexible working to stop reinforcing the stereotype?

The panel:

Chair: Dr Carole Easton OBE, Chief Executive of Young Women’s Trust

Harini Iyengar, Practising Barrister, Expert in Equality law and Spokesperson on Equal Representation for the Women’s Equality Party

Tara Leathers, Deputy CEO of The Prince’s Trust

Will McDonald, Group Sustainability and Public Policy Director at Aviva plc (job share) and Chair of Trustees of the Fatherhood Institute. Part of the most senior all-male job share in the UK.

Asif Sadiq MBE, Head of Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging at The Telegraph
