The issue of unequal playing fields in the workplace has been a long-standing problem. With the rise of hybrid work environments, the challenge of visibility and networking has become even more complex.

Studies have found that being visible is a critical aspect of achieving success, and networking plays a significant role in shaping how employees are perceived. Visibility issues are not limited to any particular gender, but gender-related socialisation can make the situation more complicated, as women often face different circumstances than their male colleagues.

Led by leadership expert Dr Malcolm McGregor, the session will cover:

  • The importance of visibility in determining success in the hybrid workplace
  • How to navigate gender-linked stereotypes that can impact self-promotion
  • Strategies for enhancing visibility, including networking and professional development initiatives
  • The role of inclusive leadership in promoting diversity and fostering an environment of support and collaboration

This virtual event is free to Full and Directors’ Circle members. It will also include an opportunity for Q&A and sharing experiences with other members of our network, under Chatham House rule.
