Women and Wellbeing

– a critical issue for today’s businesses.

The Powerhouse is delighted to invite you to our next event to hear Aniela Unguresan speak about Women and Wellbeing – a critical issue for the business world today, and in the future.

This topic is based on the 2014 research conducted by Mercer, in conjunction with the EDGE Certified Foundation ‘When Women Thrive Businesses Thrive’ report based on benchmarking data from Mercer’s gender-diversity research with 164 organizations in 28 countries.

Women and Wellbeing – a critical issue for today’s businesses.

This report showed interesting and unique insights into what makes women successful in our corporate world today – whether you are working for an organization, or for yourself.

Join us on Friday, 6th November for after-work drinks and a lively and interactive discussion on a topic that is relevant to us all.
