Speaking about the event, Siobhán Smith, Marketing Manager, Expleo Ireland, said: “Better gender balance has a positive effect on all aspects of an organisation – from company culture to business productivity. And while Ireland has made significant improvements to close gender imbalances, there is always more to be done.

“The aim of this event is to educate professionals at every level on how they can turn expectations into reality. Our speakers will draw on their own personal experiences to provide practical advice on how organisations can encourage others to put their best foot forward and succeed so businesses can drive change.”
