Entitled Women in leadership: What needs to change?, the St Paul’s Institute debate under the Cathedral dome on Wednesday 16 July will examine the
considerable institutional and cultural barriers preventing many women from reaching positions of leadership, whether in politics, in business,
or in the church.
Five highly-successful women will lead this public discussion.
Liz Bingham, Managing Partner for Talent at EY Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty Ceri Goddard, Director of Gender at The Young Foundation The Revd Rose Hudson-Wilkin, Chaplain to the Speaker of the House of Commons Frances O’Grady, General Secretary of the Trades Union Congress
Chaired by the Dean of St Paul’s, the Very Reverend David Ison, the panel will also look at what different sectors can learn from one another
in the fight for true equality and the actions we can take to create lasting change, in both business and society.
Barbara Ridpath, Director of St Paul’s Institute, hopes the event will inspire new initiatives and generate real change. She said: "By bringing
together women leaders from business, the church and other sectors to share ideas on how to empower women of all disciplines, we hope to
promote an exchange of successful strategies and techniques. It should inspire new efforts. After all ‘some leaders are born women’.”
