Women in learning special

According to research published this year, women fill 2/3s of all roles in learning and development – but only 1/3 of senior positions.

Why is this? And what can we do to encourage and promote women in learning?

This week, Ross Garner and podcast regular Gemma Towersey are joined by Sharon Claffey Kaliouby, Barbara Thompson and Kate Graham to discuss.
