Event Summary

Gender equality is a critical item on any business agenda. There is no shortage of capable, talented women, in fact the pipeline has never been stronger.

Join Westminster Insight’s timely Women in Leadership conference, as we discuss practical solutions to improve the representation of women in leadership positions and achieve a fairer, more equitable workplace for all women.

At this timely conference, you’ll have the unique opportunity to hear from a diverse range of senior-level speakers across Government, the public and private sectors who will share successful initiatives and best practice guidance to help you support, advance and retain female talent.

Alesha De-Fretias, Director of Policy, Research and Advocacy for Fawcett Society will focus on the vision for gender equality and equity within the UK workplace, including the impact of recent legislative changes. Fiona Cannon OBE, Steering Group Member, FTSE Women Leaders Review will provide an update on the FTSE Women Leaders Review and learnings for all organisations.

Is your organisation creating a truly inclusive work environment through diverse hiring practices, leadership development, and a culture of employee support? You’ll hear from other organisations such as PwC, Lloyd’s, Serco, and more.

Learn how to address intersectional inequalities in your workplace including race, sexuality, disability, socio-economic background, religion, and age, and ensure your organisation is moving from idea to impact. Ensure you are developing, monitoring and accelerating diversity initiatives. In a legal surgery, ask your questions about the implementation of the Worker Protection Bill, changes to flexible working, parental employer liability and how to address bullying and harassment with a zero-tolerance approach.

Hear from experts on women’s health and wellbeing at work such as Fertility Network UK and Endometriosis UK. Inspiring Dads will discuss parity in parental leave to enable career progression for women. The TUC will share guidance to reduce the gender pay gap in your organisation.

Attend this conference for fresh ideas to drive diversity, inclusion and gender parity as the norm in your workplace and reap the benefits in your decision making and trust from clients, investors and staff.
