Why are men still winning at work?

Gill Whitty-Collins

Why are men still winning at work? If women have equal intelligence and ability, why are they so under-represented at the top in business and society? Gill Whitty-Collins shares her thoughts on ‘Why Men Win At Work’ and how to make inequality history. 

Please do join this webinar if you want to go beyond the facts & figures on the gender equality issue and understand the psychology behind it - what really causes it and how can we address these drivers so we can make real progress? Gill will share her personal experience and thoughts on ‘The invisible power of culture’, ‘The competence vs confidence equation’, ‘The umbrella theory’ and why ‘Sisters are (not) doing it for themselves’.

Gill Whitty-Collins was born near Liverpool in England, and after attending the local comprehensive high school went to study at Cambridge University. After graduating, she joined Procter & Gamble, where she led global brands such as Always, Pantene and Olay and swiftly moved up the ladder to Marketing Director, General Manager and finally Vice President. Her story and vision will inspire you to join the force to make gender inequality history in the workplace and our society.

As we did with our virtual events held in 2020, we are adopting an exceptional fee structure for this event and we are combining this with a fundraising initiative to show solidarity with our local community.  

We kindly ask you to help BPW Lake Geneva to support an excellent local cause, the Just for Smiles Foundation. Just for Smiles is a Foundation with a public interest status that gives children, teenagers and adults with restricted mobility the opportunity to enjoy all the excitement and freedom of outdoor activities such as gliding through the snow, riding the waves, taking in the fresh air of the great outdoors, experiencing the exhilaration of speed. The mission of Just for Smiles is “to transcend the handicap and liberate the spirit”. Every donation makes a difference to the impact they can have in the community. They are based in Villeneuve and you can find out more on their website

How will this work? 

  • There is a basic charge of CHF 10:- for both members and guests for participating in this webinar - this money will go to Just for Smiles in the form of a donation from BPW Lake Geneva.
  • You may if you wish pay more than this nominal fee, thereby increasing the total amount of funds that BPW Lake Geneva is able to donate on your behalf to Just for Smiles – simply tick the appropriate box, indicating how much you would like to pay.  

We hope that we can count on both our members and guests to support this initiative and support Just for Smiles.
