Blog: What about the women? (Part II)

Catherine Sleep | 6 June 2003

Attending yesterday's IGD Global Retailing conference in London I was yet again struck by how few women delegates there were. Retail is said to be one of the more female-friendly businesses, but there was little evidence of it yesterday. It's great not to have to queue for the loo during coffee breaks, but kind of depressing to see, in a sector where women dominate at lower levels (cashiers, shelf-stackers...) how few make it to the level where they're allowed out to conferences. Or is it just that Head Office would fall apart if the women left for the day?
