Description

International Women's Day Breakfast in Newcastle!

With the World Economic Forum's 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings telling us that gender parity is over 200 years away - there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity.

And while we know that gender parity won't happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. Plus, there's indeed a very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support.

Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A strong call to #PressforProgress by motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities in Newcastle to think, act and be gender inclusive.

JOIN US!

Come along and connect with like-minded #womenintech #womeninbusiness and #womenineducation to celebrate this wonderful day together. We welcome all genders as we are inclusive and believe that we all, irrespective of gender, can #PressForProgress!
