Women in leadership - building a sustainable talent pipeline

What do business leaders need to understand about diversity?

Date/Time: Tuesday, 8th March 2016, 17:30 - 20:00

Venue: The Partners Room, Newcastle University Business School

 In a global marketplace defined by complexity, disruption and change, the most successful businesses are those that bring diverse perspectives and experiences to each new challenge. Along with being the right thing to do from a management perspective, diversity and inclusion offer a strategic advantage –especially at the leadership level.
 
Three business leaders discuss why taking a lead gender diversity is a strategic corporate decision and what it takes to make this happen:
 
  • Priyanka Banerji-Bhatia, Human Resources Director, EMEA for PayPal
  • Victoria Pilkington, Head of Customer Experience, Lloyds Banking Group Plc
  • Rachel Donald, Head of Systems & Data Ownership, Lloyds Banking Group Plc.
 
Join us for our third leadership event on 8th March 2016, to hear from and network with industry experts who will discuss gender and diversity as strategic organisational decisions. The evening will provide you as business professionals with the opportunity to enhance your business leadership skills by developing an understanding of how organisations such as Lloyds and Paypal are building a talent pipeline to develop women leaders within the organisations as a corporate performance driver.    
 
This is a free event although registration is required here. This event is not exclusively open to woman.
