 About the forum


Watch on-demand


The Great British Businesswoman Forum shines a light on women in business, whether you are a HR professional looking to attract and retain talented women, a seasoned leader looking to address current challenges in your organisation, or a younger female looking to ascend and take the next step in your career.

The Global Gender Gap Report 2020 shows that none of us will see gender parity in our lifetimes, and nor likely will many of our children. Worryingly, these findings suggest that gender parity will not be achieved for 99.5 years. That’s why it is now more important than ever to address the gender imbalance and help support female identifying individuals in business.

HR plays a vital role in supporting and assisting women to achieve parity within the workplace, and the Great British Businesswoman Forum will enable HR professionals and other key stakeholders to come together for a day of learning, support and collaboration; hearing from expert speakers in HR, diversity, equity and inclusion and those who have successfully navigated their way to the top, offering their advice on developing diversity strategies, supporting women, attracting and retaining top talent and taking female employee concerns seriously.

The 2021 Forum consisted of three core themes: female leaders, HR’s role in business and career development. You can catch up on demand below.
