Why are telcos still struggling with diversity?

Men still dominate senior roles in the telecommunications industry, but is the picture changing? A BBC analysis of the gender pay gap shows that across all sectors there has been no progress in the last 12 months. Yet, as Phil Dobbie explores in this second Total Telecom Podcast, there is every reason for companies to encompass diversity. Vodafone, for example, believe their approach is creating a more competitive company. So, if there’s sound commercial reasons for employing more women in senior roles, what’s stopping it happening?

In this edition you’ll hear from:
Catherine Michel, CTO at Sigma Systems 
Lynsey Thomas, Director at Subsea Networks
Matt Hughes, Deputy Head of Labour Market Division at the ONS
Karina Govindji, Head of Diversity and Inclusion a Vodafone
