This week's chat

October 8, 2017 #CommsChat on gender balance in comms

On Monday’s #CommsChat we welcome Amanda Fone, CEO and founder of Back2businessship, an organisation working to encourage PR, media and marketing mothers to return to work following maternity leave. We’ll look at the obstacles facing women in comms and wider businesses, the notion of returnships, if the situation is improving for women – and the companies currently at the forefront. Follow @CommsChat on Twitter and use the hashtag #CommsChat to get involved.

The topics are:

  • Is there a gender imbalance in the communications industry? If so, what is fueling it?
  • How can you return to communications after a career break? What are the challenges facing professional women?
  • What is a returnship? How does it work?
  • Are companies more flexible these days? How? Who leads the way?
  • What tips are there for parents considering returning to the workplace?

      Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place every Monday, from 8-9pm GMT. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will be posted to Storify on Tuesday morning. We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics – please get in touch with Amy at or contact us on Twitter with any ideas.
