Recently, I had the pleasure of delivering a workshop for the ICSA conference in London.
As the premier conference event for company secretaries, board and governance professionals it was an opportunity to explore how inclusion and diversity in corporate governance, in all its guises, is being addressed. It was encouraging to realise that the issue of inclusion was not a discrete topic of discussion but one that permeated many of the issues under scrutiny.

We all look and feel so amazed and astonished when a sexual harassment case at work comes up... The truth is that this happens every day, everywhere, because in a certain way society allows it and even in some cases rewards it. Bullying and harassment are unacceptable (not to mention immoral and unethical) behaviours but, what happens when society sees them as positive, mainly at work, where dominant and aggressive personalities are seen as traits of proper leaders?
To some it is a reality, for others, it is a thing of the past. However, statistics show to this day that the gender pay gap still exists in some countries. The UK, unfortunately, is on the list.
It is not rare to hear about situations in which women are apparently being underpaid due to their gender-related skills and other gender-related conditions. Despite official statistics reporting a rise in women having as good qualifications as men in the UK, there is still the notion that payment is different depending on gender.
