pro-manchester – Women and Parents Group discussion
At this event we will be revisiting the topics we discussed at our International Women's Day event in March together with the pledges made:
- Barriers to career progression
- Managing the return to work
- Encouraging parental leave
- Positive actions which can be taken in the workplace to achieve equality
We want to explore the issues that matter most to you and the progress made in relation to our pledges. We also want to know what the membership wants from events to feed into the planning process. We are looking for more volunteers to come forward for our sub-group (and which will shortly become two sub-groups).
During our session we will break out into discussion groups to look at the four areas in more detail and enjoy the same level of passionate debate that we enjoyed at our IWD event.
