Women in Public Sector Leadership 2020: Breaking Down Barriers To Success

Date 26 March 2020 08:30 - 17:00
Venue Central London

Although it is encouraging that women have made up more than half of all civil servants since 2001, only 43% of senior civil servants are women. While there has been an upward trend in the proportion of female senior civil servants, the same cannot be said for heads of departments, with only six out of eighteen departments headed by women, down from a peak of eight in 2011. Meanwhile, in local government, although 78% of local authority staff are women, only a third of local authority chief executives are female. There is a similar picture across the public sector – only a third of secondary school headteachers are female, and only 34% of housing associations are led by women.

It is clear from these figures that women are experiencing barriers to leadership across the public sector, with some groups, such as BAME women, facing additional challenges to reaching leadership. Join us at Women in Public Sector Leadership 2020: Breaking Down Barriers To Success to hear leading women across the public sector share their tips for success, learn how to develop your interpersonal skills to get ahead in your career, and network with women from across the public sector.

Attend this event to hear from successful, ambitious female leaders in the public sector and receive training and guidance on how you can develop your career further. At the end of the day, attendees will leave equipped with practical strategies to overcome challenges to progressing their careers, knowledge of how to establish and develop effective women’s networks, and the emotional intelligence skills and confidence to implement this in their workplace.
