Harnessing the Power of Diversity - What Next?

For the last couple of years we have been working directly with the Late Rt. Hon The Lord Mayor of London, Fiona Woolf CBE to create and deliver the ‘Power of Diversity’ Programme, which was a key element of her 686 plan. There were many ‘firsts’ and highlights to the programme, which will be collectively published with many of our partnering companies in early 2015.

One of the ‘firsts’ was the Harnessing the Power of Diversity Conference on the 10th June 2014 at The Mansion House in…

Implementing a Successful Diversity & Inclusion Strategy as Part of your Business Plan?

Should Families be able to Choose Who’s Left Holding the Baby?

In late November Nick Clegg announced plans which will enable new mothers and fathers to share leave - meaning men will be able to take almost a year off work.

The Deputy Prime Minister’s view is that the notion that women should stay at home to look after young children is ’an old fashioned assumption and Edwardian’. The proposals have been met with opposition from the coalition and have split the business community.

The Second Time Since 1189

On the 8th November 2013 the City of London experienced an event that has only happened once before since 1189. Any idea what that was?

No?

The City of London appointed Fiona Woolf CBE as Lord Mayor, the second woman to take this post and the first business woman.

The Lord Mayor's main role is to represent, support and promote the businesses and the people of the City of London. Today, these businesses are mainly in the financial sector where the Lord Mayor…
