LONDON – Reed Smith, in collaboration with WeAreTheCity, has launched ‘The Art of Success’: a guide for women embarking on a career in the City of London. The report is based on the findings of a survey of more than 100 senior female leaders to find out what it takes to survive and thrive as a female senior leader in the City.

“As more and more women move into leadership, we are opening doors and creating pathways for each other by developing a business community where women and men are equal in their capabilities, their contributions, and, of course, their successes. Although no two career journeys are alike, we believe that sharing stories and advice from senior women may encourage others to fulfil their own potential,” said Tamara Box, Reed Smith managing partner, Europe & Middle East. 

“The number of women reaching the pinnacle of their chosen career paths has never been higher, but what the figures don’t tell us are the stories behind the women who have achieved these senior positions and the barriers they have had to overcome to get there. Our goal with ‘The Art of Success’ was to find out exactly what it takes to survive and thrive as a female senior leader in the City so as then to pass these words of wisdom down the female pipeline and share them with companies wishing to nurture their female talent pool”, said Vanessa Vallely, managing director of WeAreTheCity.
