Leadership - Empowering Equity, Not Just Equality

When: March 8, 2023

Where: Bristol, United Kingdom


Equality is about providing everyone with the same resources and opportunities; equity recognises that everybody has unique needs and circumstances.

On International Women’s Day 2023 (8th March), a panel of Bristol’s business leaders will explore this distinction, and how a fresh focus on equity can empower more women into leadership roles.

Currently, women still account for just three in ten senior leadership positions while the UK gender pay gap remains at more than 8%.

Aimed at business leaders, senior management, and those aspiring to similar positions, attendees can contribute to a discussion that includes:

* Reflections from local business leaders on what equity means in their workplace
* What an enabling company culture looks like
* Practical advice on how leaders can empower women in and outside of their organisation into
 leadership positions – and what needs to change

* Clare Elford (CEO, Clue Software) - Clue Software are a provider of intelligence and investigation software, trusted by 4,000+ investigation professionals worldwide.

* Emily Hill (CEO, Ghyston) - Emily is co-founder and CEO of Ghyston, a Bristol based software house delivering high-quality bespoke software projects for ambitious companies.

* Sharon Alred (Co-founder and Director, Signature Recruitment) – Signature Recruitment are an award-winning, founder-run recruitment consultancy helping ambitious businesses build better teams.

* Paul Dodd (Co-founder and CIO at Huboo) - Paul co-founded Huboo in 2017, an eCommerce fulfilment partner using people and technology to help every size and type of business to grow.

* John Wood (Managing Partner at TLT) - John is Managing Partner at TLT and chair of the firm’s Executive Board, responsible for delivering the firm’s ambitious long-term strategy and growth plans.
