Event description

Description

The advantages of having a gender diverse workforce are well publicised, and current research is adding to the rationale for this to be a strategic focus for business leaders. However, the winds of change are slow to come to fruition. Reaching back to the earliest days of women’s careers, to the challenges facing women at work today, Jennifer Buttery will share the reasons that developing gender diversity is said by some to be stalling (or, in some cases not getting off the ground at all).

Jennifer will present the key steps that make the difference to developing and maintaining a gender diverse workforce, and how the latest evidence is giving further insight into how this can be encouraged and maintained in organisations.

Come along to experience an engaging and informative fact-based presentation, and leave with a revised perspective on what it takes for an organisation to become gender diverse, and what actions you could take in your company.

A Principle Practitioner of the Association of Business Psychologists, Jennifer has a BSc in Psychology, an MSc in Occupational Psychology, and accreditation in several psychology- based assessment tools, including emotional intelligence and balanced leadership.
