About this Event

Gill looks beyond the facts and figures on gender bias and uncovers the invisible discrimination that continues to sabotage women in the workplace and limits their shared success.

In conversation with WACL’s Claire Sadler, addressing both men and women, she sets out the psychology of gender diversity from the perspective of her personal experience and shares her powerful insights & workable advice on how to tackle the gender inequality issue.

Her story and vision will inspire you to join the force to make inequality history.

What Gill has experienced, witnessed and learnt about gender equality as a woman in senior management will resonate with people, whatever their gender, wherever they are working. She now works to drive gender equality and diversity as a key lever to build stronger businesses and stronger societies.

Gill spent 26 years with Procter & Gamble (P&G), where she quickly progressed through the ranks, earning a reputation as a world-class Brand Architect and Business Renovator. Gill thrived in the highly competitive business environment and her success in business saw her move swiftly up the career ladder to Marketing Director, General Manager and finally Senior Vice President, running leading global brands such as Olay, Always and Pantene.

After attending the local comprehensive school, a love of language and steely determination took Gill to study Modern & Medieval Languages at Selwyn College, Cambridge University. Upon graduating and with a baby son in tow, she joined P&G.
