Reed Smith, in collaboration with WeAreTheCity, is delighted to announce the launch of a study of the behavioural characteristics, personality traits and journeys of ascension of female leaders in the City of London.
The findings of the survey will serve as a guide on how to achieve success for women embarking on careers in the City.
Through understanding the characteristics and journeys of those who have trodden the path before, women will be able to: identify key skills instrumental to career advancement; learn how to navigate career breaks; discover the types of characteristics and personality traits that female leaders consciously portray in the workplace; learn their hours and working patterns; and lastly learn what success looks like for today’s leaders. The survey is open to women working in the City of London with a job title equivalent to director, partner, head of department or a C-level position.
Margaret Campbell, director of Reed Smith’s Women’s Initiative Network EMEA said: “We are thrilled to be launching our survey ‘The Art of Success’, in collaboration with WeAreTheCity. With so many career choices available to women today, it is our hope that the findings of this survey will serve as an essential guide for all women navigating a career in the City.”
Vanessa Vallely, Managing Director of WeAreTheCity said: “Reed Smith is an avid supporter of the gender diversity agenda and has been a close ally and supporter of WeAreTheCity’s work since 2015. It gives us great pleasure to partner with such a fantastic organisation. Through this research we hope to unveil just what it takes to thrive and survive as a female senior leader in the City, and to pass these words of wisdom on to the female pipeline and companies wishing to nurture their female talent pool.”
