In the lead-up to the Women in Credit Awards, Credit Strategy is seeking to discover the level of gender bias women in the credit profession have experienced.
Addressing gender issues is vital for a thriving profession and the Women in Credit brand highlights and encourages more debate on these issues. From board representation, diversity policies, the gender pay gap, returning to work, as well as differences in leadership styles, we believe there is a place for a platform to highlight and discuss these matters.
As such, we are asking our readers to take a short multiple-choice survey to help us further understand the current diversity issues within the industry. It’s crucial that Credit Strategy readers take part as we seek to get as full a picture as possible of where the profession is on gender issues.
The results will form reports on the progress the credit industry has made and has still to make.
Take the survey here.
The Women in Credit brand is expanding in 2020, with the first Women in Credit Forum taking place at the Credit Summit, providing a much-needed place to discuss issues affecting gender diversity in the workplace, highlighting women’s experiences and how cultural changes can improve outcomes for women in the profession.
The Women in Credit Awards will also be returning to Credit Week for a third year, this time hosted by Suzi Ruffell.
Regarded as one of best up-and-coming acts, she was nominated for the Best Breakthrough Act at The Chortle Awards. Fast establishing herself on the live circuit, Ruffell has shared the stage with Alan Carr, Josh Widdicombe, Kevin Bridges and Romesh Ranganathan.
There is still time to submit entries to the Women in Credit Awards, with final submissions due by Friday, January 24.
