Helen Pitcher, chairman at Advanced Boardroom Excellence, spoke at the O2 Women in Leadership event in London. The event highlighted the work that needs to be done to achieve gender equality in UK workplaces.
Speakers explored the idea that this will not only be achieved through culture change in businesses, but also by addressing the potentially self-limiting beliefs of some working women.
Helen Pitcher OBE, chairman at Advanced Boardroom Excellence, mentioned that caring for her father helped keep her grounded. “We are not put on this earth to have a job title,” she said.
