Transforming Workplace Culture – join the debate!


Monday 9 July 2018



Join us for this inspiring conference and to hear the findings and key recommendations from the research led by Murray Edwards College on how men and women can work together to change workplace culture to be more inclusive for everyone.

The Chamber’s Business Women Sector, in partnership with Murray Edwards College, is for the first time hosting a conference entitled ‘Authentic Leadership’ focusing on the Collaborating with Men report. Murray Edwards College has led on some fascinating research that focuses on key ways to transfer workplace culture.

The focus of the morning will highlight the benefits of more inclusive cultures and how through:
- Seeking to understand women’s (and some men’s) issues with workplace culture
- Individual interventions to tackle gender bias behaviour
- Building closer relations between men and women
- Action for leaders to model gender inclusive behaviour and communicate the benefits.

We’ve lined up an exciting panel of speakers sharing their views and ideas for the future to support workplace culture transformation. Through making small incremental changes in individual behaviour, this can add up to big changes for women’s advancement into the top levels of careers.

Our conference aims to explore this further through speakers and workshops to give you the tools to take away and consider how you might use these to add value in your own workplace.

Speakers include:
- Fiona Duffy, Director of Development Murray Edwards College
- Qun Yang, Co-founder of Biorbyt Ltd, Executive Director of Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre, Cambridge Judge Business School
- Anne Bailey, Owner, Form the Future CIC

The conference is on Friday 14 September, starting at 10.00am with registration and finishing with a buffet lunch and networking and will be held at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge.
