Attend the Financial Times Women at the Top 2019.

October 17, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

About Women at the Top 2019

The world is run by those with the most money and power, who for centuries have shaped hierarchies, cultural norms and the structure of how people live and work. Today, despite significant efforts by government and business to shift a greater share of money and power to women, this imbalance persists. The number of women at the top of FTSE 350 and S&P 500 companies has dropped in the last year, while the gender pay gap, investment gap, and pensions gap remain. Enforced transparency and societal pressure have brought hidden power inequalities to light and helped to drive progress, but to achieve further meaningful change, business and policy leaders must show commitment to more action.

The need for gender equality is widely accepted, yet progress on achieving this in the workplace is in danger of grinding to a halt. What is impeding a breakthrough? For forward-thinking organizations investing more time and effort in trying to get it right, how do you know you are making changes that will shift the dial? How will power dynamics evolve if money starts to be controlled by different hands?

Agenda

This event will have an interesting agenda and keynotes. For instance, the opening keynote: Redefining power, Financial services: the great missed opportunity, My path to the top: Successes and setbacks, Pay: Time for action, Live demo: How tech can help make the workplace fairer, FT review of the day’s themes will be some the event’s talks. By the end of the day, there will be a Q&A in which you can find the answers to your questions.
