This week we have been celebrating International Women’s Day at Thames Water with a number of networking opportunities and events across our sites; from London to Reading to Swindon.
Our women and champions of women have heard from role models including Kate Davies, COO at EU Skills, discussing our sector inclusion commitments that we collectively launched on 11th February 2019, outlining what we are doing across the industry to create better balance.
Additionally our HR Director Janet Burr facilitated a workshop focussed on our achievements as a company so far as well as all the great things we are doing such as our leadership and management development programmes, mentoring (including reverse mentoring) and our work with schools and colleges to inspire women to consider careers in STEM.
We also heard from Exec and senior leaders Sunny Tucker, Kelly Macfarlane, Mark Stables and Angela Booth at Thames Water, Angela Peart from Women Utilities, Julie Williams from Lighting Fires and Sarah Stevens from Smart Works, discussing self-belief, confidence, personal brand and leadership.
