Coinciding with International Women’s Day 2023, this half-day conference highlights the issues still facing women in finance today. By asking why such an imbalance still remains in the workplace, we will give marketers and executives alike the answers they need to level the playing field between men and women, and will highlight the work of those companies that have already taken great strides in giving the women in their businesses equal opportunities to reach the top.
Opening remarks from our Keynote Speaker and Event Chair
With women making up nearly half of the workforce, why has equality been so hard to achieve? Great strides have been made in levelling the playing field between women and their male counterparts, but has it been enough? In this lively session, we put our panel up to debate whether Financial Services have done enough to address the equality gap, or whether there’s more that needs to be done.
Despite the issues still facing women today, there are many companies paving the way in creating safe, inclusive workspaces for the women in their business. Here we highlight but a few, who will walk you through the changes they implemented and the tangible results they achieved – pitfalls, successes and all!
Changing the attitudes of the workplace is a mammoth task and cannot be done alone. When uprooting the traditional balance of power, how do you get the those around you involved in the conversation and bring them onside, and how can you enact the change you wish to see?
Our panel of industry leaders will chart their career journeys from start to finish, taking us through all the challenges and pitfalls they experienced because of their gender and how they overcame them. From stories of personal resilience to ingenuity and determination, these powerful women serve to show that anyone can make it to the top!
