Women in Leadership Conference
When Emma Walmsley was announced as the new CEO of GlaxoSmithKline in 2017, she became one of just seven female CEOs of FTSE 100 companies. Cressida Dick’s appointment as Metropolitan Police commissioner in February 2017 means the force is now lead by a woman for the first time in its 188-year history. But across the public sector, where 65% of the workforce is female, women hold just 35% of senior positions.
A lack of female representation at the top level is exacerbating a gender pay gap which currently stands at 18% and widens even further after women have children. In a bid to reverse this trend, the Government has set a target of 33% female representation on company boards by 2020 and unveiled plans to force major employers to release gender pay gap figures. In 2017, the Women and Equalities Select Committee warned the Government that it was not doing enough to achieve its target of eliminating the gender pay gap in a generation. MPs called for all employers to offer flexible working hours, more help for couples sharing childcare equally, support to help women who have taken time out of the labour market and measures to address chronic low pay in predominantly female sectors.
Join us for the Women in Leadership Conference where leading experts will discuss how women can realise their full career potential and what employers must do to help female staff take on senior roles.
