Increasing diversity at the top: what works?

Women in leadership - a deep dive to get to the truth

Nov 12
CEDA welcomes Professor Hannah Piterman for a Trustee boardroom lunch.


Professor Hannah Piterman, Professor of Practice, Deakin University

Event overview

A 2016 survey of 233 companies and 2200 employees showed that while the vast majority of companies had introduced measures to increase gender diversity at the top, many were struggling to achieve significant results.

A new research study at Deakin Business School is seeking to identify and understand the deeper organisational and cultural issues that impede gender equality in the workforce, and the tools that leaders in industry and government need to tackle them.

Join project leader Professor Hannah Piterman in a Chatham-House discussion to share your experience and contribute to the development of practical, evidence-based and achievable recommendations for action.

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
