Time's up! How can we call time on the gender gap?

When: March 8 2021

Where: Virtual, United Kingdom


To mark International Women’s Day, this Leaders LIVE will focus on how we can collectively create a more inclusive world of work and call time on the gender gap.

The theme of International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose to Challenge’. Every day we make choices. We can choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequity or stay silent. We can choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements or let them slip by quietly.

One of the greatest challenges to closing the economic gender gap is the position of women in the workplace. The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2020 found that although it is still set to take over a lifetime to close the gender gap, women in leadership are playing a crucial role.

In this event, we’ll speak to women holding leadership positions in industry and get the opportunity to ask them about their personal stories of challenge and celebration. We’ll find out where their challenges have led to change and get their advice for how we can build a culture of celebration.

Join us for an uplifting debate! All gender identities welcome.
