PwC to hold diversity events this week

Posted: 05/03/2019

PwC is hosting events in Guernsey and Jersey this week to highlight the benefits of having a diverse leadership team in business and how this links directly to higher economic performance.

Coinciding with International Women's Day this week (8 March), the free-to-attend events – Women in Work: The Key to Economic Success in the Channel Islands – will explore how having more women in work, creating and leading local businesses and closing the gender pay gap, will lift the local economy. 

Drawing on a panel of local and international speakers, PwC will explore how policymakers, educators and businesses can realise this untapped potential and, in doing so, bridge the skills gap and boost diversity, prosperity and growth in the Channel Islands.

Keynote speakers across both events include PwC UK's Diversity and Inclusion Consulting Leader, Jon Terry; Equiom Group Global CEO Sheila Dean (pictured); and PwC Northern Ireland TechSheCan expert Narelle Allen. 

In Guernsey, they will share the stage alongside PwC's leadership team and Deputy Gavin St Pier, President of the Policy and Resources Committee, States of Guernsey; Lucy Ann Kirby, Head of Digital, Economic Development, States of Guernsey; and Andreas Tautscher, CEO, Altair Partners. 

In Jersey, Jon, Sheila and Narelle will be joined by Jess Dunsdon, ITV News presenter; Rory Steel, Director of Beaulieu Institute of Technology; Becky Houze, fourth generation dairy farmer, Lodge Farm; and Nicolle Maltwood, Chairwoman, Women in Tech, Jersey.

During this week, PwC is also launching a report, Women in Work Channel Islands Index 2019, which offers further evidence that women are an important but under-utilised source of talent and economic dynamism in the Channel Islands.
