WeAreTheCity is delighted to announce that we will be partnering with the FT Women at the Top summit which returns in September to tackle one of the most complex challenges we face today: how to fix the gender imbalance in the top ranks of business in Britain and beyond.
The composition of top UK management remains stubbornly uniform despite significant progress to make organisations more diverse and inclusive. The costs to companies and the economy of male dominated leadership are well documented. Yet many employers are still inadvertently turning away future leaders – male and female – by continuing business as usual.
Join us to look at how leadership could be transformed over the next decade as the impact of policy changes becomes clear. Hear practical examples and insights from the most forward thinking business leaders, academics and policy makers tackling the gender imbalance and take part in action-focused debate to discover how you can effect change.
We have negotiated a 10 per cent discount for WATC members to attend, a saving of £100 on a single ticket to this leading summit which can be activated by using the code WATC10 when registering. Further discounts are available for two or more bookings.
