Diversity Pays


The Malta Chamber organised a conference titled Diversity Pays, showcasing the science which states that when men and women work together, the results are far greater. Ms Catherine Calleja, representing Atlas Insurance as well as The Malta Chamber’s Health & Wellness committee, was joined by President Marisa Xuereb and Ms Rachel Attard in opening the event.

Dr Roberta Metsola gave a digital intervention on video in support of the event, promoting the message that women can lead.

A presentation was given by Dr Anna Borg on gender balance & decision-making at the workplace, illustrating the science that shows how the participation of women in business and on boards leads to improved decision-making.

This was followed by a panel discussion including Dr Maryanne Caruana, a consultant cardiologist providing a different perspective on the conversation, as well as Natalie Briffa Farrugia, Chair of Vassallo Group. They were joined by two men on the panel; Mark Azzopardi of Working Town and psychotherapist Matthew Bartolo of Willingness Malta, to showcase that diversity is not just about women, but is about men and women working together as equals.

Dr Marthese Portelli provided concluding remarks, referencing statistics by McKinsey which demonstrate that female management leads to employees being better able to establish a work-life balance, confide in managers and receive more support.
