The Financial Alliance for Women and Mercer are co-hosting an event for financial services leaders in Paris on March 10, 2020: Diversity & Inclusion: An Enabler for Sustainable Growth.
While companies in the financial sector are still lagging behind in terms of Diversity and Inclusion, France is leading the EU in terms of percent of women in the workforce (48 percent) and on boards of large companies (44 percent).
However, women are still very under-represented in the C-Suite/EXCO – particularly in positions with P&L responsibility – reflecting broader pipeline challenges. Lack of diverse leadership is hindering companies’ ability to recruit and retain the best talent, get access to the best ideas and to maximize performance. It has now become an imperative for financial services companies to integrate D&I into their core business strategy.
Recent Alliance research has also shown evidence that companies that are not effectively acknowledging women’s priorities and needs at every step of the customer journey are missing out on a very significant revenue opportunity.
We invite you to attend our morning seminar, during which we will explore this important topic and discuss best practices from France and overseas. The event will gather leaders from French industry and government, as well as subject matter experts who will discuss ways to improve diversity in the financial services sector, including Pat Milligan, Senior Partner & Global Leader, Mercer.
8.30am – 12:30pm
8, avenue Dutuit
All presentations and Q&A-Sessions will be held in English
