FT Women in Business Summit Europe
We Are Live In
Amid soaring energy prices, high inflation and weakened consumer demand, business confidence in Europe has hit rock bottom. With leaders in survival mode, how will they maintain their commitments to gender equality and D&I? How can investing in diverse leadership, fresh management strategies and tackling challenges in the executive pipeline help businesses perform better? Will the Women on Boards Directive, passed last year after a decade sitting on the shelf, finally help to shift the gender balance in Europe’s boardrooms?
The FT Women in Business Summit Europe (formerly Women at the Top Europe) is aimed at senior business executives and senior management across all sectors who are keen to engage, learn and share tactics on inclusive leadership, responsible business and the future of work. This one-day event will give attendees the opportunity to be part of an exclusive community of leaders, as well as provide actionable tips for transformation, innovation and positive change in their businesses. The programme will feature panel discussions, networking opportunities, inspiring keynotes and practical workshops to build leadership skills and strategies for success.
