Can we achieve gender equality in management roles in the next decade?
The UK economy is going to need two million new managers by 2024. But if we are to see gender balance at work then, 1.5 million of those new managers will need to be women. The figures come from the Chartered Management Institute, which is launching a new initiative to redress that imbalance in the workplace. Men outnumber women in management roles three to one, and the Institute says it’s time to campaign for what it calls "gender parity". Patrick Woodman, Head of External Affairs at the Chartered Management Institute, joined Share Radio Breakfast to give more details on the issue.

Is insurance heading towards a digital transformation?
It seems that in spite of the UK's leadership in so many financial and techie areas, it's taking a long time to drag insurance into the cloud-based, digital age. It could be because of regulation and worries about security but insurance remains a very traditional industry with much processing and record-taking still carried out on paper. Unsurprisingly, the financial service technology provider FIS wants to change all this. It has just asked 500 global insurance companies about their attitudes to industry innovation. Share Radio's Presenter Nigel Cassidy spoke to Martin Sarjeant, Risk Solutions Chief at FIS, to find out more
