Event description

Description

Please join us as our student, Ethan, is in conversation with Charlotte Hallqvist, the Global Communications Lead for HeForShe, a movement launched in 2014 by UN Global Goodwill Ambassador, Emma Watson, and UN Women, the United Nations entity for gender equality.

HeForShe is a global solidarity movement which aims to shift the gender equality conversation by engaging men and boys as advocates for gender equality. HeForShe is changing the traditional gender equality narrative to be more inclusive, recognising that gender equality is a benefit to all.

An IB graduate herself, Charlotte founded her first company at 18 while in Shanghai, China, then her second company at age 20. "After graduating from university I started working on my own start-up, rather than ensuring that I have a job lined up after graduating, which would have been the "safe route". My last year of university I decided to do something I loved and pursued a minor in nutrition. I applied to my current post for the same reason. I asked myself what I really cared about, and thought I would pursue something I was passionate about rather than something safe."

All students, staff, parents and friends of Halcyon are invited. Come hear about Charlotte's fascinating journey - Inspiring Voices is community sponsored so all proceeds go to Halcyon's development projects.

Tickets: Adults: £15. Students/Staff: £5.
