The announcement in December of revised parental leave legislation paves the way for new thinking around the pregnancy journey and transition to motherhood for female executives.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of meeting Lisa Buckingham OBE and Senior Advisor on Diversity for the Institute of Directors.
We discussed my insights and knowledge regarding the issues around pregnancy in the workplace, return-ships and the overall impact the pregnancy journey and new motherhood has on the pipeline of female talent, some of which Lisa included in her Autumn article in the IoD Big Picture.
To mark Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Institute of Directors is hosting a series of events looking at how to make sure British business is open to all. Throughout this week, the IoD will address a range of diversity issues including age, gender and ethnicity.
For real change to happen it needs to get personal.
To create a powerful movement you need to be able to engage a strong connection and feeling of passion from within.
To be a leader who truly inspires you must be able to convey a heartfelt message which others can resonate with.
If you are a Head of Diversity representing a Pioneering Business who is looking for Higher Levels of Return-ship and a Pipeline of Strong Female Leaders to progress to Board Level, please join me online next week.
The event is FREE to attend but requires advance registration.
