'The Future of Work and Women'

Guest Speaker, Dr Anita Sands

Queen's Management School hosted their 2020 Mary McAleese Diversity Lecture on Friday 7 February with Guest Speaker, Dr Anita Sands presenting on 'The Future of Work and Women'

Anita talked about the future of work and what this means for women. Anita has long been an advocate of greater diversity in the workplace particularly with regard to the role of women. As she put it recently, ‘As a senior woman I fundamentally believe that we have an obligation to “lift as we climb”, as we still have a long way to go before we reach any kind of parity of representation’.
