This 90 minute IWD event will bring together women in business across all sectors to celebrate International Women’s Day! 

You will have the opportunity to hear from our two inspirational speakers as well as contribute to discussions around the impact of, and solutions to, every-day sexism , gender-based violence, within a culture of misogyny and inequality. Of course we will also be doing some networking too, using the break out rooms for people to connect and find out about each other, and what IWD means to each of you.

The theme this yeatr is #choosetochallenge.  What does that mean to you?  How do we as individuals challenge inequality, call out bias, question stereotypes, and address all forms of gender inequity?  These will be questions we shall be discussing and we would love to hear what you have to say. 

Celebrate International Women’s Day with new ideas, inspiration & connections and help keep the momentum going.
