Event overview

Understanding why women are under represented in leadership positions necessitates asking some hard questions.

  • Is it a symptom of gender role stereotyping?
  • Are there barriers to access - real or ingrained - that prevent workplace meritocracies and deter women from leadership positions?
  • Why do some professions struggle to attract and retain top female talent?


Join CEDA as we hear from brilliant women who have challenged these barriers to rise to the top of their game and hopefully made the path less travelled an easier road for the young women following behind.
