In June we welcomed back Jeanette Wheeler, former Chair of NBWN.

Jeanette gave a very interesting and helpful talk on the Gender Pay Gap following the new legislation that came into force in April 2018. She helped us understand what the gender pay gap actually means, how it is measured and what we can do as business women to work towards closing this gap as well as some ideas of how to work towards having greater female representation at board level, for example joining local charity boards or volunteering as a trustee. It was great to hear some of Jeanette’s own experiences as a partner at Birketts, a member of a number of local committees and as a mother.
