Public Finance by Women (PFW) supported by Grant Thornton UK LLP is delighted to be hosting a roundtable on 5 December, 5.30pm – 7pm, to discuss whether there is a fair playing field for women seeking leadership positions in public finance.
We are a new and innovative non-profit organisation established earlier this year to support women in public finance by providing mentoring and promoting the advancement of gender equality through advocacy, thought leadership and research. This roundtable will help to promote the contributions women can make to public finance and public services more widely as leaders.
The event will be chaired by Gillian Fawcett, Co - Founder, PFW and will include Lucinda Longmore, Project Lead from the Hampton-Alexander Review, who will share insights on how gender equality is being advanced in FTSE 350 boards https://ftsewomenleaders.com/about-us/ . This is a fantastic opportunity to compare and contrast approaches across the private and public sectors and hear from PFW about the findings of its recent survey on gender equality in public finance. There will also be time at the end of the roundtable to network and enjoy some nibbles and drinks.
Catch up on the latest news about 'Breaking Barriers for Women Leaders in Public Finance'. On 18 July 2019 PFW outlined the case for change and the barriers that confront females as they strive to succeed in their careers. Chaired by Sumita Shah from ICAEW, she asked some searching questions about how we overcome the barriers and issues, such as unconscious bias and the organisational DNA, as well as setting out some of the enablers.
