In this episode we hear from two champions of workplace diversity with a background in marketing – Helen Tupper is a former Microsoft marketer and founded career development company Amazing If, while Sky’s Head of Women in Leadership Tamara Kaye has worked in marketing in production. Listen in as they discuss why Sky insists on a 50/50 gender split shortlist for senior roles, why it’s okay for a manager not to have all the answers to hand when faced with a sensitive problem and the challenges of handling a diverse team.
