Getting more Women in Politics and Work

Gillian has, for several years, championed getting more Women into Parliament and senior leadership roles.  For nearly three years she sat as the Co-Chair for the Women and Work APPG that provides a forum to constructively examine and debate the role that policy makers can play to deliver gender balance within the economy. It also allows Members of Parliament and interested stakeholders to examine the responsibilities of employers and explore what more is required from the private, public and third sectors to deliver the Government’s ambitions for women and work. Follow the APPG on twitter: @womenworkappg

As the former Director of Women2Win she has been focused on getting many more women, from a variety of backgrounds, into Parliament to ensure that the Conservative party can better represent 21st century Britain. 

Gillian became the Director of Women2Win in June 2015. Women2Win was co-founded in 2005 by Baroness Anne Jenkin and now Prime Minister Theresa May, after the percentage of Conservative women MPs had remained at the same level following the 2001 and 2005 general elections.

In addition to her work with Women2Win, Gillian has co-chaired a review of women in local Government with Dame Margaret Hodge, led by the Fawcett Society. The Fawcett Society is the UK's leading charity promoting gender equality and women's rights at work, at home and in public life.
