This year’s theme, ‘Finding Balance’, will address questions around work-life balance and what this entails for both men and women and will also examine how we achieve gender balance across industries.

Keynote speakers:

  • Sue Owen, Permanent Secretary for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport
  • Amanda Messler, General Manager at Microsoft

There will also be other notable speakers from AstraZeneca, Admiral Group, EY and RBS, who will bring experience and advice on how to promote the empowerment of women in leadership positions.

Although women have made great strides in business careers, their rise up the corporate ladder is still not easy. The UN Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment (2016) stressed that addressing this gender imbalance "requires local and global action by all parts of society often working in partnerships".

Join CJBS for this opportunity to be part of the debate and share your ideas and research to help us shape what gender equality really looks like.
