Wo+Men's Leadership Conference 2017

Wo+Men's Leadership Conference: Finding Balance at Cambridge Judge Business School

Cambridge Judge Business School hosted its third conference dedicated to Women's Leadership on Saturday 10 June. This theme, 'Finding Balance’' addressed questions around work-life balance and what this entails for both men and women and also examined how we achieve gender balance across industries. 

The one day conference delivered an exciting programme of keynote speakers, workshops and panel discussions by outstanding industry leaders from an array of sectors and provided a great opportunity for attendants to network and connect during the conference.

The diverse range of speakers will provide invaluable insights for both men and women wanting a deeper understanding of what makes successful leaders in business.

Although women have made great strides in business careers, their rise up the corporate ladder is still not easy. The UN Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment (2016) stressed that addressing this gender imbalance "requires local and global action by all parts of society often working in partnerships".

Cambridge Judge established Wo+Men's Leadership Centre as a way to forge and lead these collaborations and work collectively to learn from each other and make the changes needed to foster a gender-balanced workforce globally. By attending this conference, you can become part of the debate and share your ideas and research to help us shape what gender equality really looks like.
