Male Champions of Change Panel

We are thrilled to present to you our ‘Male Champions of Change’ panel. We have invited four male industry professionals to discuss their views on the industry and how they take action on gender inequality, to support gender equality! They will provide us with insight in to the actions they and other male champions of change take, to influence and support women and ultimately drive change across the private and government sectors.
