Webinar #11: Parenthood in Finance: Nurturing Inclusive Workplaces
  • Time: 1 PM - 2:30 PM
  • Date: Tuesday 22 March 2022

Businesses are increasingly tackling the toxic ‘hustle culture’ which can have a fundamental impact on employee wellness. People are demanding more from companies when it comes to parental leave, flexible working, salary negotiation and family-friendly inclusion policies

Join us for the first in our Parenthood in Finance series, to coincide with Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day, we will explore how businesses can support and enable parents, particularly women to get back into work after parental leave, and how we can work to rethink family policies to empower women at work. With a particular focus on financial services and how we can drive diversity policies to boost gender diversity in senior management.

Our panel of speakers:

  • Alison Yamoyany - CFO at Digital Theatre+
  • Janna Eisenbrandt - CFO at Artdis
  • Amel Steel - Host & Chair at Broadgate
  • Dominique Highfield - Director of Finance at Pentland
  • Hester Scotton - CFO at Law Debenture
  • Laura Cox-Granville - Finance Director at Alexa Chung

  • What was the biggest shift in going from working women to working mother
  • What can businesses do to break workplace bias
