City & Financial Global, in partnership with the Government Equalities Office and the Women in Business Council, is delighted to announce The Vote 100 Women in Business Summit, taking place in Central London on 17 April 2018.

This high-profile forum will celebrate the centenary of the 1918 “Representation of the People Act’, which gave women the vote for the first time, by creating a platform for women across different industries to discuss the most important issues facing UK business, including diversity issues, and review how female leadership has changed over the last century. 

The event builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates across the industries, government officials and regulators from across the UK and beyond.

The forum’s interactive format will offer attendees an opportunity to have a diverse and well-informed dialogue about the most effective ways of getting men to join in their efforts to address the gender imbalance at all levels of their organisation, as well as making sure that gender diversity remains high on the business agenda despite all the other pressures firms are facing.  

Other key topics include:

  • The outlook for the economy amid geopolitical changes across the world. Recent government’s actions on maximising women’s contribution to future economic growth
  • Acknowledging and celebrating the impact of women’s leadership on corporate performance. How have successful UK women influenced female leaders globally?
  • How will increasing use of technology and artificial intelligence transform industry and the workplace? Women’s impact on developing technology, promoting innovation and improving productivity
  • Women’s empowerment through the supply chain – how should companies focus on women-owned businesses in order to support women’s economic empowerment in the UK and globally and why is it important?
  • Promoting "The Power of Equality", effectively and steadily moving towards closing the "three Gs" – the participation gap, the remuneration gap and advancement gap
  • Dispelling myths regarding boardroom roles. How to get to the top and raise your profile internally and externally? Advice on planning your career journey and tips from role models
  • Reviewing policies and initiatives to address the gender imbalance in your firm. What are the imperatives for building a successful diversity and inclusion strategy?
  • Agile working – benefits for men, women and companies. Returning to work after maternity leave – best practices and the strategies which have worked well across businesses
