WOMEN LEADING CHANGE – Creating Pathways to Equality in Business

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 - Wednesday, September 26, 2018
5:30 pm London - 10:00 pm London
London, UK
One Southwark Bridge
London , UK

One of the biggest challenges facing business today is the lack of gender diversity in senior leadership. The UK Government has mandated greater numbers of women on public boards by 2020 and required companies to release pay equity information. What is the result of these actions and what work remains to be done?

Join Paul Hastings, Quorum Initiative and The Wilson Center to hear how business leaders are tackling issues of pipeline management, culture shift and necessary inclusion measures. What can we learn from them and each other? Discuss practical ideas about how we can accelerate the pace of change.

Topics to cover

  • Critical issues that must be tackled in the workplace for gender parity to be achieved

  • How businesses are using policy changes to create positive pathways for female employees to advance

  • The cultural shifts businesses are or should be making to address lack of inclusion

  • Tactics businesses are adopting to get more women into leadership roles

  • The responsibility of organizations versus individuals in shaping change
