At the highest level in Knowsley Council – the Executive Management Team – 33% of our directors are female, significantly higher than the 21% reported in 2019’s McKinsey and LeanIn.org ‘Women in the Workplace’ report.
One of those directors is Colette Dutton, the Executive Director of Children’s Services and a key champion of the Knowsley Social Work Academy.
