In June, Natalie Collins will be leading an interactive session on the right use of power.

She was on Newsnight recently and is also a founder of Project 3:28 which exists to see the church embrace gender justice. You can find out more about Natalie on her website.
Ruth Dearnley will be talking about the work of Stop the Traffik and her experience as a woman in leadership. Ruth was a founding member of Stop the Traffik in 2005 and has been CEO since 2008. With a law degree and a background in education, Ruth has spent the last 20 years communicating creatively and inspiring and facilitating others to transform the world around them, starting in their local community. Ruth was awarded an OBE in 2014 for her work with Stop the Traffik.
Katie Harrison, head of media and communications at Tearfund, will be talking about the effects of war on women. She travels the world, reporting back on what she sees and has recently visited Iraq, DRC, and Nigeria. You can see her talking on Al Jazeera about conditions in Syria here.
Plus we’ll be hearing from Louise Haughton, who trained as a social worker and has had a varied 15 year career across social care including residential care, secure units and looked after children. She now looks after Wolverhampton’s adoption service and she’ll be talking about how to navigate challenges, maintain focus, and the importance of personal vision and mission when working in big organisations.
