The Rose Review
In line with International Women’s Day 2019, the government-commissioned Rose Review was published. This review examines the barriers women in business face and what can be done to overcome them.
Alison Rose, CEO of commercial and private banking at NatWest and author of the review was appointed by Robert Jenrick, exchequer secretary to the Treasury, to identify the entrepreneurial gender gap and what could be done to reduce it. Her findings reveal that female entrepreneurs are underrepresented in high-value sectors such as manufacturing, IT and communications, and financial services.
This information is amongst other insightful statistics as well as her advice on how we can work together to overcome these.
“We need the creativity and innovation that comes from diversity to keep up with the rapidly changing world around us. The goal of this report is to help build a stronger, more productive economy by making the UK the best country in the world for women to start and grow new businesses.” – Alison Rose
