About the WBC

The Women’s Business Council (WBC) was set up in 2012, as a government-backed, business-led initiative and launched our ‘Maximising women’s contribution to future economic growth’ report in June 2013. In September 2019, we relaunched with a renewed focus to encourage action to tackle the gender pay gap across some of the sectors in highest need of change. The WBC is currently chaired by Fiona Dawson, President Mars Global Food, Multisales and Global Customers.
