Description



Is the Sustainability Sector Gender Neutral When It Comes to Pay & Leadership?


Gender equality has never been such a hot topic, critical to delivering the change we need to see in creating a sustainable world.

Aside from this just being 'the right thing to do', many research studies have demonstrated diversity improves organisational performance. On top of that, gender equality is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 5).

So, has the sustainability/ green sector got its act together in this regard or is there still much work to be done?


Our Panel of Speakers:


Gorse Burrett, Head of Human Resources, Triodos Bank

Dr Dominic Hogg, Chairman, Eunomia Research & Consulting

Anthea Carter, Former Head of Global Sustainability, Clarks

Wendy Stephenson, CEO, The Converging World


Join us for an evening of stimulating discussion, ‘real’ conversation and a chance to connect and network with both women and men from across the region as we discuss:

What are the realities of being female and having leadership ambitions within a career creating a ‘greener, healthier or happier’ world?

How can ‘women in sustainability’ and their organisations successfully tackle the gender pay gap?

What can women and organisations do to ensure gender equality not just in pay but also in the opportunities and career satisfaction?



Who is this event for?

This event is for professional men and women (and those identifying as being a woman) working in careers or businesses that are building a greener, healthier and happier world. We take 'sustainability' to cover all three pillars - environmental, social and economic.

Those who attend come from private, public and charitable sectors; from a diverse range or organisations and companies, including resouces, waste, energy, transport, water, food, farming, communications, research, policy, campaigns, media, housing, retail, professional services, etc; from big corporates to sole traders and social entrepreneurs.
