Happy new year to you all! I hope that you had a rest over the holiday season and took time out to focus on friends and family. My new year has started with a flurry of activity as we are busy planning our next event which will take place on International Women’s day on Tuesday 8 March 2016 at Altitude 360. This will be our biggest event to date and we are adopting the International Women’s day theme of Gender Parity. The World Economic Forum in its Global Gender Gap Report in 2014 estimates that it will take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity in the workplace. That’s a staggering 80 more years until companies and governments are equally led by men and women. This doesn’t just affect our generation at work, it will affect your daughters, your grand-daughters and even your great grand-daughters!
At WICT UK we think that’s just too long to wait so we are building an exciting agenda of speakers around this topic.
We’d love to see you there so please mark your calendars and look out for your invitation soon.
