at Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo
While diversity and offering equal opportunities in the workplace and male-dominated industries has been pushed up the agenda, it is a constant challenge to accelerate the level of change required to make a true difference.
A working paper from The Peterson Institute for International Economics, which studied 22,000 companies in 91 countries proved that businesses that have a 30% female representation in leadership positions see a 15% increase in profitability than those who don’t. This gap is also evident in UK-based private limited companies, with UENI’s recent report on gender and small business highlighting that only 32% of businesses in the UK are female-owned.
There is still an incredible amount of work to be done to close this gap, so, the big questions are: why is it taking so long? And what can we do to support?
Karren Brady’s Women in Business & Tech Expo, taking place 12-13 October 2022 at Excel London, aims to empower professionals and shine a light on organisations who champion diverse workforces and equal opportunities.
Curated for individuals who are eager to thrive in their careers and progress their businesses, this female-led exhibition and conference provides inspiration, guidance, recruitment opportunities, and professional services to supercharge attendees’ professional journey within the technology and wider business sectors.
