Whitehill Pelham and Cambridge Employment Law are pleased to announce the date of our next Cambridge HR In Business Seminar. The morning will start with a case study from Sally Ann Forsyth on Women in Leadership and Oliver and Eleanor will round up the session with an employment law update with a focus on discrimination.

Sally Ann holds a PhD from Cambridge University and has a successful career in corporate and SME environments. Sally Ann will share with us her story of how she has progressed her career, the lessons learnt along the way and her view on what it takes to reach the boardroom.
Oliver and Eleanor will give us an insightful and action packed summary of recent employment law changes and what impact that might have on your business and HR practice.
