13 powerful calls to action from the CMI Women conferenceWednesday 08 June 2022
The first ever CMI Women conference debuted both virtually and in person on 19 May 2022, bringing together a brilliant group of inspirational role models and phenomenal thought leaders, including the Royal Patron of the CMI, the Countess of Wessex, to discuss how we can all better champion women and women’s leadership in the workplace.

Despite making steps in the right direction, there is still a way to go to achieve gender equality in the workplace. CMI’s 75th anniversary research has revealed some sobering statistics: to be representative of the country, the UK would need 560,000 additional women managers.
This shows just how much we need to work together to change this.
What can I do?
“What we need to do requires all leaders and managers to drive change at every level. It’s on every one of us to change our behaviour and be better leaders,” stressed Ann Francke in her welcome address. “This is well beyond just about doing good – it’s critical to business success. Yet we still find many organisations focused on passive compliance rather than driving active change, and they’re failing to reap the benefits as a result.”
To give you a head start, we’ve collated 13 key actions that came up throughout the conference that you can start taking immediately.
