"Companies across all sectors with the most women on their boards of directors significantly and consistently outperform those with no female representation"
Women in the workplace deserve to be celebrated and recognised, therefore in honour of this we are presenting our Power Series Women's Day Special! This promises to be an evening packed full of thought provoking, remarkable and empowering moments, as some of the UK's senior leading female business leaders deliver quality and inspirational talks.
Our Power Series Women’s Day special will be led by some of the UK's senior female business leaders across various industries who have thrived against the odds and achieved huge success.
· Heidy Rehman
Founder and Managing Director, Rose and Willard
I launched Rose & Willard is September 2014. I decided to set the business up after realising that there was a gap in the market for professional womenswear. Central to the ethos of our brand is empowerment (underlined by the meaning of our name – Feminine & Bold). We promote body positivity and diversity through our imagery and messages. We have featured ‘non-model models’ in our campaigns and will only work with models who are willing to eat with us.
In tandem with our strategy I speak at events on body positivity, Imposter Syndrome, equal pay, etc. I also write for a number of media outlets including the Huffington Post, the Guardian, i and others. I also write on broader industry and economic topics.
We are not afraid to be a brand of action and to speak up for what we believe. Indeed we believe this also reflects who our customer is – women who are Feminine & Bold.
Senior Independent Director at Aberdeen Asset Management and Founder of Rungway
Julie Chakraverty is the founder of Rungway, an app on which anyone can give and get advice about work-life challenges. She started the company after seeing an opportunity for new technology to offer personalised support for those needing fast, relevant career advice. Julie believes that she wouldn’t have achieved her career milestones if she hadn’t sought out insights and mentoring from people outside her personal network. Starting her career in a male-dominated (trading floor) environment meant female role models were few and far between.
Julie also serves as the Senior Independent Director at Aberdeen Asset Management where she is Chairman of the Risk Committee and former Chairman of the Innovation Committee. Previous non-executive roles include Mitsui Amlin where she chaired the Remuneration Committee and Spirit Pubs. Julie is also a Trustee for the Girls Day School Trust.
During her executive career, Julie was a Board Member of UBS Investment Bank where she held a number of global leadership positions. She chaired the UBS Women’s Network, “All Bar None”, and won industry awards for innovation every year between 2001-2009 for her “CreditDelta” technology product. In 2006, she was named in Management Today’s ‘Top 35 Women Under 35’. In 2013, she was recognised in The Times newspaper as the youngest female director of a FTSE-100 company, aged 41.

Head of Membership and Funding at the Banking Standards Board (BSB)

Diversity and Inclusion Expert and award winning entrepreneur, richvisions
Mavis Amankwah is an award-winning entrepreneur; specialising in marketing, PR, diversity communications and business sustainability.
Her vision began in 2002 when she noticed that there was a major gap in the market where corporate and commercial organisations needed to tap into diverse and hard-to-reach audiences but had challenges engaging with them. Mavis founded Rich Visions Diversity Communications to bridge that gap. She has successfully steered the company to become one of the leading diversity communications agencies targeting niche audiences.
