In the US and Europe women account for less than 17% of board members of large publicly listed companies. In the UK, we have seen some movement with women now occupying almost 19% of seats, but it is still disproportionately low. So why is it so difficult to get to the top? And what do women leaders say about leadership and leading? In 2014, we brought together Penny Thompson, Chief Executive of Brighton and Hove City Council, Anne Boddington, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Brighton and Caroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion to discuss their experience and reflections at a panel discussion chaired by RSA Chief Executive Matthew Taylor. This video is a recording of our second event, in which we brought together Richard Upton, CEO of Cathedral Group, Michael Edwards, CEO Albion in the Community, Giles York, Chief Constable Sussex Police, Simon Fanshawe, Diversity consultant, and James Rowlands BHCC Violence against Women Commissioner at BHCC, to add their insights.
