Women in Business Task Group
Our belief is that businesses cannot reach their full potential if they fail to recruit and retain a gender-balanced workforce. Having more women in decision-making positions has been shown to make a positive contribution to the bottom line and to the way businesses are run.
We are committed to recognising and supporting organisations that align with and aspire to achieve gender equality and inclusivity for all women in business. We aim to bring about improvements and to showcase pioneering approaches within the business community.
We aim to advance gender equality at all levels of business, especially at senior levels where women remain poorly represented. We want to build a local and national reputation for taking action to bring about significant improvement for all women in business and to showcase and aim to pioneer new approaches to working that influence businesses both nationally and internationally.
The Women in Business Task Group is part of the Bristol Women’s Commission, established when the Mayor signed the European Charter for Equality of Women and Men in Local Life in 2013.
We are a group of women in business who have come together to make this happen, because it's important for business and for Bristol. Find out more about who is involved here.
