17 May Reporting and Setting Targets with Alex Chisholm at the House of Lords
On 15 June 2017 POWERful Women will be celebrating it’s 3rd Anniversary with a drinks reception at the House of Lords. Our Chief Guest Speaker will be Alex Chisholm, Permanent Secretary for the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy. The theme for this year’s event is ‘Reporting and Setting Targets’. Some of our POWERful Women sponsorsing and pledging companies have reported movement in their statistics regarding the number of women on their boards and executive boards, but with still only 6% and 9% respectively, the energy sector is falling way behind recent recommendations. It’s no secret that gender diversity is good for business so we look foward to views on why the energy sector is lagging so far behind.
