In many professional services organisations, women and men enter in equal numbers. But in more senior roles and in the partnerships, there are usually more men. In this session, we will explore the business case for gender balance and present the latest research on the experiences of women in the workplace.

We will consider some of the common assumptions about women and men at work and share the evidence relating to the key blocks to women’s progression.

Jean Balfour will then provide practical approaches to helping women and men to progress in their careers and focus in particular on career planning and how to raise your profile at work.

About the speaker:

  Jean Balfour is an organisation consultant, facilitator and Ashridge accredited executive coach with 20 years in organisation and professional development. Jean leads Bailey Balfour, an organisation consultancy based in Singapore with clients in Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East. She specialises in executive coaching, diversity and inclusion, leadership development, and board and team development.

Who should attend:
