From Bias to Thriving: Women, Leadership and Better Wellbeing
Celebrating International Women’s Day – 5 March, 2020 | 17:00 – 21:00
Hosted by: Willis Towers Watson Headquarters – 51 Lime Street, London England, EC3M 7DQ
True change starts with genuine and intentional collaboration. That’s why we are inviting company leaders, academics, advocates for women, and students to lend your voice and experiences to a conference dedicated to raising the bar for women’s mental wellness, promoting equity for women at work, and eliminating the gender-wage gap in London on International Women’s Day.
Organized by GW4W and hosted by Willis Towers Watson, you will have the opportunity to gain the foresight you’ll need for greater resilience for you and your organisation. Our strength is bringing together unconnected parts to accelerate positive change for women through our data and connections.
We’ve carefully curated a group of cross disciplinary voices that include top business leaders, academics, and research-based experts who don’t just “talk” about wellness and gender equity but will bring action-based solutions to narrow the gap and help female leaders thrive. Our speakers include: Andreea Apostle, Dr. Dale Atkins, Chetan Bagga, Heather Connery, Daniel Hajjar, Jocelyn McDermid, Tangy Morgan, Oana Neumayer, Dr. Susan Nicholson, Dr. Jummy Okoya, Asif Sadiq, Amanda Scott, and Stephen Young.
Why is this conversation important?
Very little funding goes specifically to women’s health research.
Proceeds from this event will be used for much needed health research and development of more strategic solutions to address this gap and to deliver resources to business and community leaders. Partners will be listed as a contributor to the research. Our next research project will be conducted in collaboration with SHINE, The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
