ANZ co-hosts a panel moderated by Harriet Minter

There’s been a lot in the press recently about the Gender pay gap and the Motherhood penalty. We’ve also had the #MeToo campaign which focuses on the abuse of power against women. Our panel discussion explores both men and women’s perspectives and promises to be a lively one with Harriet Minter, journalist, broadcaster, women in leadership advocate and presenter of @badasswomenshr, moderating.

A special thanks goes to ANZ, one of our Corporate Sponsors for hosting this event.

We have a great line up of panelists including Diana Brightmore-Armour, CEO UK & Europe for ANZ – previously CEO of Corporate Banking at Lloyds Banking Group, Diana has had experience in corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, financial management and corporate treasury.  Diana is a strong advocate for gender diversity through her involvement in 30% Club and CWN

Frank Mannion – Citibank’s Chief Financial Officer for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with responsibility for over 1,000 staff across the Region. 
Martin Daubney – Journalist, broadcaster, public speaker who campaigns on men and boys’ issues.
Tom Beardshaw – Paternity Coach, single dad and former campaigner for Paternity Leave

Topics to be explored include

  • Why do so few men take shared parental leave?
  • What are the challenges for a dad that decides to take the primary carer role?
  • What did we do right in how we furthered women's mission in the City and where did we go wrong
  • What advice have you got for us all in order to progress our ambition in the City
  • What does “being a man” entail in today’s world and “being a woman” in a man’s world.
  • Has the focus on women succeeding in the workplace gone too far?
  • Is there a male backlash?

We would love to see close to equal representation of females and males at this event so please extend the invitation to your male colleagues.
