#BreakTheBias with Women@ Tech UK | Cross Company Panel
Women make up almost 56% of the entry-level workforce, but are 14% less likely than men to get promoted in a company each year*. This year's International Women’s Day theme of #BreakTheBias lends itself to thinking about what biases we want to collectively raise awareness of and address through different lenses.
Watch back our open conversation discussing how to forge a more equal workplace, with our inspirational panellists:
Bex Xiao, Head of Community Operations at Uber
Opeyemi Sofoluke, DEI International Manager at Meta
Anna Vainer, Head of Think at Google and Growth B2B, EMEA Marketing and #IamRemarkable founder
Investing in your financial security: How to close the gender investment gap
Only 1 in 5 women in the UK are investing, versus 1 in 3 men (Source:YouGov), and this is putting women at a financial disadvantage in the long-term. In fact, at retirement age, the average wealth of women is just a quarter of the amount held by the average man (Source: Chartered Insurance Institute). It’s time to bridge the gap.
Watch back our event with investing expert Aysha van de Paer, who's mission is to help women achieve financial security over the long term while investing in a way that is supportive of the planet and society.
Women@Tech presents ‘The Broken Rung: How to overcome obstacles on the path to senior leadership’
In many industries men significantly outnumber women at the manager level, which means that the pool of women to promote gets steadily smaller, and the number of women decreases at every subsequent level. This is known as the ‘broken rung’ effect.
Watch back our event, to hear tech leaders discuss common barriers to success faced by women in the tech sector, and hear practical guidance on how to overcome them.
The personal accounts from our panel is enriched by advice, tips and tricks from Dr Sally Ann Law, executive and life coach.
