Gender Equality Network

Our Gender Equality Network is a new initiative established in 2021 as a sub group of our D&I Committee.

The aim of the Gender Equality Network is to understand and address issues which may contribute to an imbalance in the gender make up of the company and ensure that we provide an environment in which everyone can succeed.

We have plans for a number of programmes:

Imposter Syndrome

Our first programme saw over 180 of the 7IM team join workshops on Imposter Syndrome. Led by our learning partners at Abstract, the sessions explored the reasons behind it, ways in which it can manifest itself and ideas for how to tackle it and reach your maximum potential.

My Career Journey

Our next programme – My Career Journey – is focused on increasing the visibility of, and access to, senior females within the firm.

We run regular sessions with a different female from within the business, and give everyone the chance to hear how about how they have reached their current role, their experiences along the way and the advice they’d impart to those looking to do the same.

By understanding people’s journeys and seeing the challenges that they’ve overcome or how they manage their situations, we hope to show others what is possible and help them achieve their full potential.
