Talat Yaqoob, Director, Equate Scotland
Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, Oil and Gas UK
Talat Yaqoob is the Director of Equate Scotland, the national expert on women and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Talat will be focusing on what Equate Scotland does, the under-representation of women in STEM; and how important it is to balance women’s development opportunities with cultural change and challenge bias across all sectors. Talat will also discuss good practice from different employers and explore how businesses can effect long term cultural change.
Deirdre Michie started out as a law student and went on to become CEO of one of Britain's most influential trade bodies. Her presentation will focus on ‘surviving and thriving in a corporate world’ and will look at the highs and lows she has faced during her career journey, why she opted for a career in oil and gas; and what it's like taking charge of an organisation and representing an industry through one of its most difficult and sustained downturns.
