15/05/19: Does flexible working reinforce gender stereotypes? | Artemis Coaching

Flexible Working Debate


A debate in aid of Young Women’s Trust brought to you by Artemis Coaching

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 confirmed panellists include:

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

Rosie Kinchen, The Sunday Times (Chair)

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.
