#WhyWait – Driving Gender-balance and New Opportunities for Women Today
Last year, the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, best known for the annual Davos gatherings, added 47 years to the time necessary to reach workplace equality. According to the WEF, in 2017, gender parity ‘shifted into reverse” and it will take 217 YEARS for disparities in the pay and employment opportunities of men and women to end. It is the first time since 2006 that “slow but steady progress” toward parity has halted.
Join this interactive session to learn more about
- The factors that will help us close the gender pay gap
- The new opportunities available to women today

We’re hearing a lot about gender right now – from HSBC’s reported 60% gender pay gap, to KPMG’s ‘creatively accounted for’ mere 23% pay gap.
