The pandemic has pushed back gender parity across the UK FTSE 350 to 2036, with women holding just 22% of all executive committee roles. Just 15 of the top companies have female chief executives. While we’ve made some progress in recent years, what needs to change to reach true equality? ICAEW's Susanna Di Feliciantonio and Jane Berney discuss the issue with a panel of experts.

The panel:

  • Andrew Weir, Regional Senior Partner of KPMG in Hong Kong and Vice-Chairman of KPMG China, and Global Chair of Asset Management for KPMG
  • Leda Condoyanni, Chair of the Non-Executive Directors’ Club in Greece + board member of ecoDa
  • Catherine Musakali, Advocate of the High Court of Kenya and Chairperson of Women on Boards in Kenya
  • Susannah Haan, a non-profit leader currently holding a portfolio of non-executive director roles
