2018 everywoman in risk forum: The gender impact 

 

 

everywoman is pleased to announce the launch of the 2018 everywoman in Risk Forum taking place in London on 29 November 2018. This empowering one-day event will gather influential key players who have achieved great success within their profession and share stories of their journey. 

A growing body of research demonstrates that gender balanced teams produce better outcomes and create a more sustainable future for an organisation’s entire workforce, with a direct and positive impact on the bottom line.

With careers in risk spanning across many sectors and disciplines, the forum will look at how organisations can harness gender differences to help build effective teams with broader skill sets, differing qualities and greater input resulting in improved risk management and governance. In what is becoming an ever more complex world it is important to have both female and male role models in risk to strengthen the talent pipeline.

The forum is open to both women and men and is an ideal fit for female and male managers who are looking to develop teams of gender balance, qualitative and quantitative skills and productivity.

Whether you’re a manager looking to drive your team’s performance or an aspiring leader, our motivating line-up will help give you the skills and motivation you need to succeed.

Don’t miss the chance to get connected at this valuable event focused on advancing women and building gender diverse teams. 

The 2018 everywoman in Risk Forum is certified by The CPD Certification Service
