Women on Boards
Thu 5th October (08:00 - 11:00 )
Conference Suite, Innovation Centre, Innovation Way, York, YO10 5DG

So why are so many organisations passing up on this opportunity every day by failing to recognise the employees who can deliver in all of these areas?

  • FACT - Profit margins are almost double in FTSE 350 companies with at least 25% females on their Executive Committee, yet...
  • FACT - the % of women on FTSE 350 Executive Committees remains unchanged in the last 12 months at a paltry 16% (The Pipeline, Women Count)
  • FACT - only 34% of the 3.3 million managers in the UK today are women … that means 513,000 women are missing from management. (CMI for Women, The Missing Middle)
ACTION - We are determined to support women and organisations to act now to address the imbalance and lost opportunities.
You are invited to join us on the 5th October to share and explore experiences and identify what more can be done.

We are…

Karen Milner, Paths & Progress, former HR Director, supports organisations to get the correct structure, people, and business-focussed plans in place.

Chris Gilkes, gluetogether limited, change management and development specialist, supports individuals and organisations to acquire the right skills and behaviours to make it at the next level.

And we will be joined by Diane Cheesebrough, Deputy CEO, thebigword, as our Keynote speaker - having held executive and board roles across public and private sector organisations, in sectors such as financial services, telecommunications and technology, Diane will outline her route to the top, the challenges she faced, and what organisations can do to leverage their talent across mid, exec and board positions.
