Professor Barbara Allan Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean of Westminster Business School gave a presentation about Women in Executive Leadership for Hong Kong University SPACE (School of Professional and Continuing Education). During the presentation, Barbara talked about the importance of workplace diversity and the impact of diverse teams on the performance of companies. She particularly focused on the issue of women on boards.

“Overall, there is a complex picture. However, there is a very strong business case for ensuring that teams are diverse – it has a positive impact on company performance. In addition, women need think about their identity, how they present and promote themselves, so they will be in the right direction with the right mindset then to take on a leadership position,” said Barbara .
