Why gender equality is not just about women. Imagine a time when gender is no longer a question; men and women have equal pay and opportunity. The structure of work needs to transform. Men need to understand and embrace the change required and women need to stop getting in their own way.

Most recently these include IBM iX everywoman Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 and Business Travel News Top 25 most influential people 2018.  In her spare time Caroline co-leads support network Women at Work, and delivers a number of industry education programmes.
