Chwarae Teg is delighted to support ‘The Vote 100 Women in Business Summit’ event organised by City & Financial Global.

The Summit will bring together a platform of distinguished women, drawn from a range of business sectors, to discuss the key issues facing British business today, including the critical importance of diversity in the boardroom and among senior management.

Given that 2018 is the centenary of the 1918 “Representation of the People Act’, which gave women the vote for the first time, the conference opens with a session that reviews how female leadership has changed over the last century.

The forum’s interactive format will offer attendees an opportunity to have a diverse and well-informed dialogue about the most effective ways of getting men to join in the efforts to address the gender imbalance at all levels of their organisation, as well as making sure that gender diversity remains high on the business agenda despite all the other pressures firms are facing.

Some of the key topics include:

• Discussion of key developments over the last 100 years: What are the most important issues women are tackling at present time and how has female leadership changed through the century?

• Maximising women’s contribution to future economic growth: Why a gender diverse workforce is vital for increasing productivity, innovation and the bottom line for businesses and the economy

• Agile working – benefits for men, women and companies: Returning to work after maternity leave – best practices and the strategies which have worked well across businesses

The event will take place in London, on Tuesday 17th April 2018.
