Event Details


CIPD Scotland’s ‘Knowledge into Practice’ Network team would like to invite you to the nextKnowledge into Practice event exploring the ‘gender debate’ and, in particular, the societal and workplace issues affecting women’s career progression.  

The event will be opened by CIPD Scotland, providing an insight into the CIPD’s perspective on women’s career progression. Professor Wendy Loretto, Dean of Edinburgh University Business School and Professor of Organisational Behaviour, will then lead us through current academic perspectives on gender debates and women’s career progression at both societal and workplace levels.  We will hear from Dr Waiyin Hatton on her personal aspirations and leadership journey, rising from Clerical Officer to Chief Executive of a NHS Health Board, and representing Great Britain over a 12 year period in karate – in spite of limitations, prejudices, and addressing attempts to undermine her professional reputation.  Finally, Lynne Cadenhead will provide an insight into the concept of self-leadership and, in particular, embracing differences and actively ‘being a women’ in the workplace.  One ‘big question’ will be posed by each speaker for debate and discussion.

 Sponsored by Edinburgh Napier University and the CIPD South East Scotland Branch, the event is targeted at (male and female!) practitioners, policy makers and academics interested in sharing views and perspectives.
