The Changing Shape of Female and Inclusive Entrepreneurship

Presented by

Julia Streets

About this talk

For our international Women’s Day episode, host Julia Streets is joined by Yvonne Thompson CBE, Entrepreneur, Campaigner and Activist and Vanessa Vallely OBE, Managing Director of WeAreTheCity. Together they share their experiences of the changing face of entrepreneurship and business over the decades. The discussion sets out priorities when building back businesses in 2021, considers key steps to gender parity and explores the impact of Covid-19 on the female workforce. They talk about new models of leadership and the important attributes required to be successful. The conversation turns to social inclusion and the value of entrepreneurship, corporate intrepreneurs and the importance of involving women and ethnic minorities in idea generation and business decision-making.

We’ve seen a growing appreciation of the value of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) in the financial services industry. Organisations have increased their focus on D&I initiatives, but is this simply marketing rhetoric? Some would argue that we’ve seen great progress, whilst others would say there is still much to be done. For each episode of DiverCity Podcast we invite recognised leaders and influencers – people who are pioneers in their own right – to talk about areas of transformation and aspects of D&I that need greater focus. Our contributors offer their insight and practical ideas to help organisations and individuals drive change. Tune into our fortnightly podcast.
