Kathryn Beck and Chris Moore spoke to their work with the Women’s Advisory Panel to a capacity audience – addressing women’s access to and participation at senior levels of the profession, pay equity issues and high attrition rates.
Statistics continue to reflect gender disparities in each of these areas. This is despite the fact that the number of women in practice is effectively equal to the number of men.
Empirical evidence confirms that genuine gender diversity in the workplace promotes productivity across an organisation. We all benefit.
The Women’s Advisory Panel continues to seek input from the profession in order to better understand the barriers for women in the hope that those barriers can be overcome.
This was OWLS’ third annual Diversity Event and was open to the entire profession. OWLS wishes to thank our colleagues who were able to attend and engage in the debate.
