1 hour

Weston Lecture Theatre

Entrepreneur, author and equality campaigner Paola Diana makes a passionate case for more women at the top of politics and economics.

Diana argues that gender equality has a huge positive impact in a variety of important areas including national wealth, political empowerment, economics, life expectancy, literacy and stability. She questions why countries in which women have achieved political, economic and social rights ignore the cause in countries where women are left behind. She makes the case for more women in economic and political leadership roles to act as standard bearers for change.

Diana is founder and chief executive of recruitment and lifestyle services business Diana Group, whose subsidiaries include Sigillus Lifestyle Management, Nanny & Butler and Supreme PA. She appears regularly on television in the UK and Italy promoting female entrepreneurship and women’s rights.

The Gibraltar Lecture is given at the invitation of HM Government of Gibraltar. Previous speakers were Baroness Helena Kennedy (2018), Laurence Rees (2017),  Boyd Tonkin (2016), Professor Frank Close (2015), and Ben Okri (2014).

Diana will be introduced by The Hon Gilbert Licudi QC, MP, Minister for Tourism, Employment, Commercial Aviation and the Port, Government of Gibraltar.

This event is part of Italian day at the festival.
