Our second roundtable conversation exploring the challenges individuals and organisations face in supporting, developing and advocating for greater numbers of women in leadership roles was recorded in late January 2021, and hosted by Sarah Kelleher, Client Experience Lead
We know companies in the top quartile for gender diversity are 15% more likely to outperform competition, and yet globally, women still hold just 24% of senior leadership positions.*
What is being done? Sarah spoke to Lucia Marcuzzo, Vice President Northern Europe at Levi Strauss & Co, Audrey Cooper, Head of Womens Coaching at The FA, and Patrick McMaster, Team Coach at Leading Edge and feminist advocate to hear more about the practical steps individuals and organisations are taking.
