Men and women in the workplace: collaborating to change corporate culture
Cambridge in America invites you to a special drinks reception and discussion on how men and women can create a more inclusive workplace together. Drawing from ground-breaking new research led by Murray Edwards College, Dame Barbara Stocking will share the five behavioural changes that could make all the difference. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Dame Barbara Stocking, Eileen MacKrell (New Hall, 1977) and David Humphries (King's, 1995). There will also be a Q&A session.
