16.30 – 17.45      What does this means for careers, readdressing the gender imbalance

We are looking for speakers who will take on these subjects and provide thought provoking ideas that lead to good debating sessions. Each speaker will have 5 minutes to address the topic (we don’t want corporate presentations this time is to be used to address the subject) and each session will have a moderator who will ask challenging questions alongside ones from the audience.

Press will be in attendance.
