The Book Club (virtual edition)

With Ann Francke OBE, author of Create a Gender-balanced Workplace

Creativity and storytellingInterviewsStrategy 

In association with Penguin Business and Campaign, Zone is delighted to host a virtual Book Club with Ann Francke OBE, chief executive of the Chartered Management Institute and author of Create a Gender-balanced Workplace. We would like to invite you to join us on this for this virtual edition of the Book Club, to hear her discuss her latest book and debate issues of gender equality at work. The conversation will be facilitated by Edward Craig, head of content labs at Campaign.

Gender balance is first and foremost a business issue. McKinsey estimates we could add 28 trillion to global GDP if we achieved gender equality everywhere - that is more than the GDPs of the US and China combined. But it is so much more than that. Gender balance is one of the best levers we can pull to build better managers and leaders at every level, improve team performance and create better cultures where everyone can thrive.

In Create a Gender-balanced Workplace, Francke introduces her solution to combating the problems at the heart of the continued imbalance and offers clear, actionable strategies for making a positive change in your organisation.

Francke started her career at Procter & Gamble and has held senior executive positions at Mars, Boots, Yell and BSI. In 2019, Ann was awarded an OBE for services to workplace equality. She is an expert on gender balance in the workplace and speaks frequently in the media and conferences on this and other management topics. 

Sign up to this online session to hear Ann offer valuable insight from her book, available from Penguin Business.
