Dame Helena Morrissey

Future shape of the workforce

CANCELLED Tonight's talk has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Distinguished Speaker Seminar / Inspiring Women at Oxford Saïd

'Don’t lean in - change the system' is the advice Morrissey followed when she began her crusade to change the gender balance on company boards in the UK.

She founded the 30% club, enlisting the chairmen of large companies in the UK, and around the world, to create change and succeeded against the odds. Now she has moved to a new campaign - The Diversity Project, accelerating progress towards an inclusive culture in the investment profession, raising awareness of the need to improve equality of opportunity.

As a mother of nine children ( including six girls) she is passionate about the need to bring men and women into the conversation about the future shape of the workforce. Her recent book, A Good Time to Be a Girl, explores some of the issues she has faced throughout her own career.

Join us to be part of a conversation with Helena exploring the challenges she has faced and the potential for the next big breakthrough towards a more diverse workplace for all of us.
