Robert Walters is pleased to deliver the Empowering Women in the Workplace programme, a campaign developed to create conversation, connect professionals and provide information and advice to help women achieve career success.

Through our blog, senior women within the Robert Walters Group share their thoughts and experiences on gender diversity and empowering women in the workplace.

Our research

As global talent shortages grow more acute, new ways of engaging and developing the business leaders of tomorrow are needed to deliver sustainable talent strategies for the future. 

Our research, based on a survey of almost 500 women working in professional disciplines, explores the effectiveness of current strategies to empower and advance women in business, looking at areas such as flexible working, mentoring, leadership and even asking women what constitutes a successful career.


We are hosting a series of Empowering Women in the Workplace events throughout the year providing you with the perfect opportunity to network, learn and share experiences.

Our events range from networking and drinks evenings, business lunches, round tables and seminars and will be hosted across a variety of the locations that Robert Walters operates in. The events calendar is being continuously updated for you to review and and register your interest for upcoming events.
