As part of the 2020 WorkEqual campaign, Eamonn Crowley, CEO of Permanent TSB, sat down with WorkEqual founder Sonya Lennon to discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion, and advancing gender equality in Permanent TSB.
Sonya and Eamonn take a deep dive into the challenges facing organisations when it comes to gender equality and the impact of Covid-19 on this journey; the practical steps that Permanent TSB have been taking to embed gender equality in all aspects of the organisation; and Eamonn explains why the bank decided to get wholeheartedly behind WorkEqual and sponsor the campaign for 2020, 2021 and 2022.
