Comments Kate Graham, ‘2020 is the year we’re building on people’s desire to achieve a better balance in L&D. All of these inspiring women have stepped forward and volunteered to share their experiences and their time to help others, and the activity at Learning Technologies is just the beginning. There are exciting plans afoot for a mentoring scheme amongst other activities for the coming year and it’s our hope that this initiative can champion inclusion across far more boundaries than just gender.’
