They will be joined by panels of eminent women who will examine the issues facing women leaders and suggest solutions.

Some highlights include looking at how sex-role stereotyping of leadership presents a hurdle for female business leaders and succession and advancement. Avivah Wittenberg-Cox, Director, Diafora will look at gender as a business rather than a women’s issue.

The panel include Anne Widdop, Engagement and Business Integration Services Director, IBM UK and Prof Lynda Gratton who will discuss bringing more women into the pipeline and on to top board level. There will also be personal experiences shared about leadership in technology driven companies.
