The recent announcement that Virgin Money's board will all be women shouldn't actually be news. After all, all male boards do not make the headlines.
Whilst it's obviously to be welcomed it's interesting, that it's unusual enough for it to make the news and does show that whilst women are very well represented in FS marketing, what about the step up from middle ranking jobs to running P&L and getting on the board? There are many who have successfully made the journey.
How can today's young female professional learn and get the support needed to make the transition in order to become tomorrow's leaders? And how do businesses need to change to truly attract female talent. In this session, we hear from experienced, diversified panel with practical experience of the current market with thoughts on how things can and should change today for the benefit of tomorrow.
