You Are Here: Division of Occupational Psychology > Women at the Top

To coincide with BBC Two programme, Hilary Devey's Women at the Top, shown on 6 and 13 September, two conferences, sponsored by the Society’s Division of Occupational Psychology and Coventry University, were organised by Professor Rosalind Searle and the Division's vice-chair, Hazel Stevenson.

Both events looked at the progress being made by boards of FTSE 100 companies in achieving their aim of 25% female representation by 2015.

The first conference took place on Thursday 6 September 2012 at Coventry University’s London Campus and featured talks from a wide range of international academics and practitioners to provide insight into attracting and developing talent, and how diversity at the top of organisations can have a wider positive impact.

Videos, podcasts and presentations from the day can be found below and pictures from the conference can be viewed on the Society's Facebook page.

The second aligned event took place on Friday 7 September 2012 at Coventry University’s TechnoCentre.
