The event convened a diverse group of participants, who inspired by real personal stories from seasoned leaders, the lessons learned, and practical ways to more quickly address gender bias, learned effective approaches to bringing more male leadership not only into the discussion, but active gender bridge builders in their organisation, gained a clearer understanding of the key barriers to better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and how to address them and made new connections with like-minded leaders at all levels.
