Speaking Topics & Event Themes for 2021
Discover the most popular topics on gender inclusivity in 2021:
Women At Work
The Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a new era in the workplace. With more employees than ever working from home, how can you ensure your female staff are supported, particularly while juggling motherhood? Our speakers can relate to the businesswomen in your team, to empower independence and confidence.
Female Mental Health
Female mental health, including wellbeing in mothers, young girls and businesswomen suffering workplace bias, continues to be a vital topic of conversation. Female speakers specialising in wellbeing are essential for discussing mental health in women.
COVID-19 & Gender Inequality
Women have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, due to the vast number working in “Covid-hit sectors”. This has increased job insecurity, affecting mental health and financial stability. Female motivational speakers can support hard-hit women through such a challenging period.
In the workplace, the underrepresentation of female professionals continues to perpetuate age-old bias. Female speakers can relate to the hardships faced by businesswomen in male-dominated environments, improving workplace representation. For the women in your team to thrive, hire a powerful female speaker who can inspire determination.
The fight for gender equality does not start and end with women, men and non-binary allies must also support the cause. At events, inspiring female speakers encourage audiences of all genders to strive for equality, both in and out of the workplace. Empower acts of allyship within your business, with a female speaker.
Key Dates to Recognise
A meaningful way to empower your female employees is to recognise one of the following key dates in the inclusion calendar:
- Women’s History Month – March
- International Women’s Day – 8th March
- National Women’s Equality Day – 26th August
Through informative and insightful events, you can teach your workforce the importance of female representation, gender equality and discuss discrimination through history. Female motivational speakers are the ideal additions to these events, as they have each broken into male-dominated environments and can recount such experiences.
