Women in Leadership Forum Breakfast Event

Join us for a breakfast event hosted by Simmons & Simmons in the City of London to learn about an outstanding example of a company's initiative to challenge one of the barriers for women seeking leadership positions. 

In 2015, LeasePlan ran the 'Leaseplan Women's Arctic Challenge’ for their female employees, designed to challenge unconscious bias within the company.

This Women in Leadership Forum event welcomes Viv Bowra, one of the twelve women to undertake this 100km ski-trek of Baffin Island in the Arctic Circle in temperatures averaging -15 degrees, to share her experiences.
