We are delighted and honoured to welcome Iris Bohnet as our keynote speaker for this thought-provoking breakfast event. Iris is an Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government and Academic Dean at Harvard Kennedy School. She is also a WIBF Patron, a member of Board of Directors for Credit Suisse Group AG and Credit Suisse AG and a trusted UK government advisor on gender equality.

Over breakfast you will hear about Iris’ new research findings building on her award-winning book, What Works: Gender Equality by Design, as well as her reflections on the Government Equalities Office and the Behavioural Insights Team’s guidelines on “Reducing the Gender Pay Gap and Improving Gender Equality in Organisations: Evidence-Based Actions for employers”.

Tracy Watkinson, MD at Credit Suisse, will interview Iris exploring her rise to the top, her thoughts on the future of gender equality and her tips for success.

Afterwards, our President, Vivienne Artz, will chair a panel session exploring these issues further with Iris and experts from the Government Equalities Office, HM Treasury, New Financial and Starling Bank.

This is an event not to be missed and we strongly encourage anyone with an interest in or responsibility for tackling these issues to attend. You will leave with a better understanding of the practical ways that we can reduce the gender pay gap based on hard evidence, and you will hear this straight from the top academic in the field, the Government Equalities Office, HM Treasury, New Financial and Starling Bank. Please join us for what promises to be a great event.
