All women are leaders and have a sphere in which they can impact and influence. But how can we use our power to speed the process of equality in business and how do we continue to #breakthebias in a world still dominated by men in leadership positions?
Women who #BreakTheBias, a webinar in partnership with The Women’s Organisation and Inclusive Companies, will shine a spotlight on some of the innovators and entrepreneurs who are breaking the mould for women in a range of industries.
Join us for a panel discussion designed to inspire and where we celebrate the trailblazing women in business and modern-day suffragettes who are leading today’s charge for equality.
#BreakTheBias is this years theme for International Women’s Day which takes place on Tuesday 8th March. Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
