The panel discussion involved three academic experts from different sectors talking about their personal work experiences, as well as discussing thought-provoking topics focused on women in the workplace. The panel was a full house and the standout discussion was followed by a Q&A with panellists, networking and music.

Chantal’s expertise allowed her to discuss a variety of workplace subjects, including job satisfaction, advancing in an organisation and positive wellbeing in the workplace. 

She gave valuable advice to attendees, such as the importance of working with integrity, showing kindness to people and trusting employees by giving them decision-making attitude in the way they do their work. All this she adds, will positively improve wellbeing in the workplace. Chantal also referenced research from her book, ‘The Psychology of Work’, during the discussion, which outlines insights into successful working practices with a particular focus on leadership and employee engagement.

Talking about the event, Gautier said: “This was a really lovely event that champions women and female empowerment in the workplace. We received some great questions from the audience which generated some insightful conversations.

“One of the organisers Emma Mills was also a past graduate of mine, which made it even more special to have been invited as a panellist for Modern Women Magazine.”

Founder of Modern Woman, Rosie Coxshaw, added: “I’m thrilled to be able to deliver such hard-hitting work and business guidance, support and inspiration to the wonderful women and men that attended. Knowing they feel motivated and empowered to keep making great ground in their personal career journey is what makes Modern Woman worthwhile.”  

The next Modern Woman event will take place in February 2020.
