Porter Novelli UK is proud to be a supporter of Omniwomen UK, an initiative launched today by Omnicom Group and designed to inspire and encourage a selection of rising female stars from across its UK companies.
Timed to coincide with International Women’s Day, the event includes speakers such as Emma Freud OBE , Founder of Comic Relief and Janet Riccio, Executive Vice President, Omnicom Group.
Fenella Gray, Managing Director of Porter Novelli London and Consumer Director, Emily Buckland will also be leading workshops as part of the agenda.
In stressing the importance of diversity in leadership, Janet Riccio, Executive Vice President, Omnicom Group, said, “This is not solely a women’s issue, but rather a strategic business imperative. Companies that have diverse, inclusive management teams and boards financially outperform those who don’t. The best investment we can make is in our own human capital.”
The Porter Novelli UK team will be sharing their experiences of the day next week on this blog.
