Most people agree that gender parity is a good idea, but there is still a long way to go. Why? What’s really stopping us? Process? Or are we all inherently sexist?
Across the month of February and culminating with International Women’s Day in March, The Team will be interviewing a variety of trailblazers and champions. How far have we come? What more is there to do?
Through discussion with the likes of Kate Bosomworth, the director at Sport England who shaped the brief for the ground-breaking ‘This Girl Can’ campaign; with Adam Warby CEO of Avanade, one of the world’s most progressive Digital Innovation businesses; and with Paul Barber, CEO at Brighton & Hove Albion, one of the few professional football teams which offers equal facilities to both its men’s and women’s squads we’ll be making a film that explores this subject.
Other speakers include Sarah Tebutt, People Director at NS&I, Pamela Coles, Company Secretary at Rolls Royce and Mahnaz Javid, founder at the Mona Foundation.
This is not a women’s issue. It’s a people issue. Gender parity is essential if men, women, girls and boys are to create a more sustainable, profitable and healthy society.
The film will premiere on Monday 7 March, the day before International Women’s Day. The screening will be followed by a short panel session, Q&A and breakfast.
So come along, and we’ll provide you with some content that can help you drive the agenda for the week.
We do hope you will join us.
