Description

Agents of Change: Women driving global positive impact


The Bradfield Centre’s #inspirationalwomenseries is collaborating with Impact Women’s Network for our next event on Thursday 10th October.

The Bradfield Centre is passionate about promoting female entrepreneurship and encouraging more women to step forward to become leaders in their organisations and the communities in which they live. We have now launched the ‘Inspirational Women Series’ which is about celebrating and sharing the stories of many of our female entrepreneurs and leaders, and the networks or organisations that they run.

In this session, Impact Women Network’s Co-Founder, Dr Shima Barakat will be discussing entrepreneurship in a world in crisis. And how women are agents of change driving positive impact, both locally and globally. Shima fundamentally believes that women have the ability to deliver impact and systemic change, and the Impact Women’s Network provides a unique facility to do this.

Join us for an insight into Shima’s vision as one of our Cambridge-based, yet globally significant, inspirational women.
