Event Details

2018 will mark a centenary since women got the vote and on International Women's Day 2018 we ask you to #PressforProgress.

Forward Ladies, in partnership with AQL and LCF Law will be celebrating this milestone with a day of inspirational speakers, networking and debate on gender parity. Gender parity won't happen overnight and women's equality is still a long way off.



Forward Ladies, supported by AQL and LCF Law support the everyday heroines, trailblazers and role models who are unapologetically pursuing their dreams and breaking through new barriers – inspiring their communities. They are determined to leave their mark and make a difference. There's a strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support. However, it can’t stop there.

Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

This event will bring together smart, engaged, forward thinking women interested in meeting likeminded individuals, expanding their knowledge and making a difference.

Together, let's be tenacious in really accelerating gender parity. Collectively, let's all Press for Progress.
