Please join The Women’s Foundation and Baker McKenzie for a Breakfast Talk with Dame Barbara Stocking on Engaging Men to Achieve Gender Equality on Tuesday, March 7. 

We are delighted to have special guest, Dame Barbara Stocking DBE, President of Murray Edwards College at Cambridge University, as our main speaker. Dame Barbara will discuss the College's ground-breaking research into behaviours and perceptions of men regarding women's workplace experiences. Until recently, most research on workplace experiences has been from the perspective of women. This new research engaged with male leaders to explore how men and women can work together to transform workplace culture barriers to progress women’s pathways into leadership positions.
