Supporting Women in the Workplace Manchester

With the business case for workplace diversity now universally recognised, a more decisive focus on gender parity is now essential to ensure that women are supported at all levels of the workplace. Women still represent fewer than 50% of leaders in every industry analysed and are still paid on average 8.6% less than their male co-workers. Action is required to make sure workplaces are prepared to keep pace with social change. 

This conference offers practical advice on removing the barriers that are preventing women’s representation in the workplace. We will discuss together how best to recruit and promote more women in our organisations, and how to encourage a positive culture change at all levels of your place of work.
