Glass Ceiling – a Myth or a Reality for Women

The CMI is putting on this free event, open to members and non-members, on Tuesday 1st February 18:00 arrival; 18:30 – 20:00 in the Hilton Hotel, Cardiff.

There will be a panel to lead the debate and are delighted to announce that Marie Fagan (General Manager of Hilton Cardiff), Katy Chamberlain (Chief Executive of Chwarae Teg and Chair of South Wales Women in Management network) together with Ian Price (Assistant Director CBI Wales) and Professor Annette Davies (Cardiff Business School) will be the panel members.

The discussion will look at a number of questions such as  

  • does the Glass Ceiling really exist?
  • do women make choices not pursue more senior posts? 
  • is the work place and organisational environment helpful to women in terms of career development? 
  • what about men – do they have a Glass Ceiling in terms of promotion?

The CMI Cymru North Wales Network will be hosting a similar event in North Wales at the same time and it is hoped that the events will be linked up via Twitter.

If you would like to attend this event please email by no later than Thursday 27th January 2011 to confirm your place.
