Mary Macleod, CEO of BITC, Will Lead the Women’s Business Council

The Women’s Business Council, which was reorganized to take evidence-based, data-driven action to empower women at work, will be led by the CEO of Business in the Community.

The updated council will be led by Mary Macleod in its efforts to empower women in the workplace.

Initiatives on entrepreneurship and flexible working were made possible in large part by the previous WBC.

“Mary Macleod’s vital expertise and trusted relationships with industry leaders will be key to ensuring every worker has the opportunity to harness their skills and reach their goals,” says Maria Caulfield MP, Minister for Women.

Nominated by Ministers of Women and Equalities Kemi Badenoch and Women, Maria Caulfield, Macleod will oversee a group of knowledgeable corporate executives to help women in all fields succeed in the workplace.

Since its founding in 2012, the WBC has played a significant role in campaigns to support childcare costs, provide greater flexibility in the workplace, and inspire women to launch their own companies.

New chairperson Mary Macleod, said:

“I am delighted and honored to have been appointed as the Chair of the Women’s Business Council for the UK Government,” stated Mary Macleod, the newly appointed chairperson and chief executive of Business in the Community.” I look forward to harnessing the collective insight of all council members, to help shape government initiatives that will unleash the potential of women and bolster economic growth in the UK,” the council said. “The Council has a key role to play in bringing the voice of business leaders to the heart of government to ensure we are doing all we can to support women in the workplace and help them progress and thrive.”
