“… Championing women in Finance is a core part of my mandate and something I am committed to, as a Minister, an MP, and as a man. Progress will be really made when the conversation no longer has to be had… when a diverse workforce is so inherent in corporate culture that it is taken as given… and gender balance is seen as nothing less than a minimum standard of every organisation "

Each of these three events attracted 250+ senior delegates.

This year’s themes are:

  • What does the future of the Financial Services sector look like and what does this mean for the role of women? 
  • Two years since the launch of the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter – how has it impacted men and women at all levels of leadership? 
  • Transforming culture - how can we effectively change the way we recruit, promote gender diversity across the company and the way we work together?
  • Gender pay gap reporting – what are reports showing?   
  • Examining barriers faced by female executives and exploring what can be done to overcome them
  • Female empowerment through the eyes of men - how we can make the finance industry better for women. Which initiatives in the UK and beyond have worked and which haven’t?  
  • Recruitment practices as one of the key areas inhibiting the progression of women in the industry. What needs to change for firms to meet their gender targets? How do millennials see diversity?
  • The impact of technology such as AI in the workplace and the structure of work
  • How could women benefit from the latest developments in technology? How do you attract female talent in fintech?
