Equality News Update: Inspirational women press for equality

Senior female business leaders pressed the case for improving gender equality, at an event in Glasgow last night.

Margaret Totten, the alliance director at the IT group GCI, Jeanette Forbes, the PCL Group chief executive, Wendy Pring, the managing director of KCP, and Sheila Flavell, the chief operating officer at FDM, were the members of the panel talking in celebration of International Women’s Day.

The theme of the day was to press for progress to achieve gender parity. The event, held in partnership between The Times Scotland and The Sunday Times Scotland with Scotland Women in Technology, heard for the need to motivate and unite people across different business sectors and communities to be more inclusive.

Gillian Bowditch, The Sunday Times columnist and chairwoman for the discussion, said: “International Women’s Day is an important date in the calendar and it has added significance this year because it also marks 100 years since women first won the right to vote in the UK. I am proud to chair a panel of outstanding women who have achieved great success in their chosen fields, and I look forward to hearing their inspiring stories.”
