Award winning events agency Zibrant will continue to champion gender equality on Wednesday 17th July when MD, Fay Sharpe, and Jo Swinson, MP Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, highlight the aims of the Government’s ‘Think, Act, Report’ initiative.  The breakfast meeting intends to provide a step-by-step framework to help companies consider gender equality in their workplaces, particularly in relation to recruitment, retention, promotion and pay.

Further emphasising Zibrant’s position as an ambassador for women in business, the breakfast roundtable meeting will bring together women from a number of different sectors, including representatives from the legal, pharmaceutical and financial industries, alongside women flying the flag for both agencies and the hotel sector.

MP Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, Jo Swinson will share the on-going progress of gender equality and encourage 40 delegates to consider how the ‘Think, Act, Report’ initiative could be successfully adopted by their organisations.
