So You Want to Hire & Retain More Women?

You’ve been told you need to hire and develop more women into leadership roles but how do you practically go about doing this?

Join us over breakfast where three industry leaders will share their insights on how a holistic approach to attracting, hiring and developing women will ensure you build a sustainable pipeline of female talent and keep them!

Applied - Kate Glazebrook - Hiring
