‘All the good  women have already been snapped up’ – FTSE 350 Leader

We would like to invite you to join us for the launch of new ABI research into the gender seniority gap to take place on 21 September 8:30 – 9:30 with a registration and a networking breakfast from 8:00 at the ABI Offices, One America Square, 17 Crosswall, London, EC3N 2LB.

Following the first convening of our member CEOs and executives on this issue, the ABI has commissioned research to identify what interventions have the biggest impact in getting more women to the top.

There is a clear seniority gap for women in our industry and many others and increased political, media and regulatory scrutiny of it. Business leaders are now aware of the urgent need to do more to tackle it, but do we know what really works when it comes to getting more women into senior positions?

Join for the launch of this research as we deliberate its conclusions and the actions needed at this event which will be the first with Amanda Blanc, incoming CEO EMEA for Zurich in her capacity as new Chair of the ABI Board, alongside leaders such as Richard Rowney, CEO of LV=.


  • Amanda Blanc, Incoming CEO EMEA Zurich and incoming ABI Chair 
  • Richard Rowney, Group Chief Executive, LV
  • Sarah Mallaby, Director of Broker Markets (Commercial & Personal), Allianz Insurance 
  • Rachel Wolf, Founding Partner, Public First

Why attend:

  • Hear first-hand the impact of this first research of its kind from the ABI on talent and diversity
  • Understand the issues driving the gender seniority gap and what we can do to address them
  • Hear leaders, political figures and colleagues across the industry share thoughts and experiences on tackling the gender seniority gap
  • An opportunity to network with industry, stakeholders and political representatives who drive change on this issue

What will delegates learn?

  • Why aren’t there more women in senior roles?
  • What has been done to address this and how effective has this been?
  • What can we learn from other sectors
  • Where we should focus efforts to drive real change?
