Spotlight: How can business inspire the next generation of female business leaders?

Focusing on gender diversity

Diverse voices lead to better decisions. That’s why to mark International Women’s Day on the 8th March, the Great Business Debate will be asking; how can business inspire the next generation of female business leaders?

To further explore this, we will be focusing on the issue of gender diversity throughout March. Be sure to check in each morning for new articles and case studies from leading organisations in the push for greater gender diversity in leadership positions. Follow the discussion this week and next, keep up-to-date with the hashtag #bizdebate.


Check in each morning this week (7–13 March 2016) for new blogs and stories for #IWD2016!
