She has the power: Women Leaders in Sustainability and Energy Transition

A just transition to net-zero is impossible without sustainable mindsets fuelling sustainable strategies. But who is responsible for shaping this thinking? Research suggests women have a huge part to play. According to a 2021 GreenBiz Report, there has been a significant increase in women taking up sustainability leadership roles in recent years. ...

Embracing Equity – are we there yet?

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is #EmbraceEquity as a way to raise gender equality and create a world free of bias or stereotypes. So where do we stand on this today? What’s it like in 2023 to be a woman in industries such as tech or financial services? I was shocked to come across a report from the World Economic Forum that showed...

Why the Fintech Industry Must Prioritise Gender Inclusivity this International Women's Day

Written by Anjulie Patel, VP of Partnerships at Nucleus365 With International Women’s Day looming it’s time to analyse our sector’s gender dynamics, where we’re underperforming and where we can do better. The fintech industry has a gender problem. In 2021, Deloitte research showed that only 30% of the UK’s fintech workforce was female, and only 17...

Addressing the gender gap in functional roles in Europe

While gender representation has certainly seen an overall improvement in the world of work over the past few years, the question remains whether it has had an impact in business leadership yet. Recent data shows that across the FTSE 100, there are three times more female employees today compared to ten years ago, up from 12.5% to 39.1% over the

Trust me, it's not a secret

Are women bad networkers?

Are women bad networkers? In my opinion the answer to this question is, of course, no. At womenintechnology we organise lots of networking events which are always very popular. There was a piece in the Times recently entitled ‘why are women such bad networkers?’ that, understandably, grabbed my attention! Its overall message is: women aren’t confi...

Male vs female boss

I recently asked a simple question to readers of my blog - do you prefer a male or female boss? With all the stories about female on female bullying and the lack of women in leadership positions, I thought this was a very relevant question. The result?

A press release is issued with the top brass thanking the departing exec for 'all their years of service' and contribution to the growth of the company -yada yada yada... I...

Is it the end of the road for women's networks?

Is it the end of the road for women’s networks? Elizabeth Harrin from The Glass Hammer blog wrote an interesting piece last week based on this question after attending an event hosted by Morgan Stanley, which I also happened to go to. It’s certainly an interesting question – women’s groups, networks etc always seem to be a controversial topic as m...
