Women of Achievement lecture

Dame Helena Morrissey DBE will deliver the next lecture in the University’s Women of Achievement series on 25 April, 5.30–7pm at Pembroke College.

The lecture, titled From Patriarchy to Partnership - a new opportunity to achieve gender equality, is free to attend and booking is available here.

Dame Helena is well known in the city, particularly for her work on gender equality. She was CEO of Newton Investment Management for fifteen years and has recently joined Legal and General Investment Management, leading a new drive to engage the nation to invest more.

In 2010, she founded the 30% Club, a business-led campaign to improve gender balance in the boardroom. The proportion of female directors on UK listed company boards has since more than doubled and there are now ten 30% Clubs throughout the world. Helena chairs the Diversity Project, a cross-business initiative aimed at improving diversity across all dimensions within the UK investment and savings profession.
