About this Event

Join us to celebrate International Women's Day (IWD) with this fun & inspiring fundraiser* event for women of all backgrounds & ages. The theme for IWD this year is #EachforEqual

Expect a fun and interactive event with inspirational speakers, stimulating group discussions, delicious food - also with opportunities for dancing, networking & to learn some new sustainability skills for 2020.

International Women's Day 2020 #EachforEqual

An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world. Let's all be #EachforEqual.

We will be joined by some exceptional women who are all working to make our city and communities more equal. They will tell us about their solutions and will also host discussion tables so you can find out more and be part of stimulating conversations too. They include;

Natalie Fee, local author and campaigner will be joining us as keynote speaker. Natalie is an award-winning environmentalist, author, speaker and founder of City to Sea, a UK-based organisation running campaigns to stop plastic pollution at source. She has also recently published - an already - best selling book, 'How to Save the World for Free.'

*All proceeds from this event will go to Catalyse Change CIC to help them empower & skill girls & young women as sustainability leaders & changemakers. The money will be used to provide free bursaries for young women from less advantaged backgrounds onto their 2020 Catalyst Bootcamp & Mentoring programme. www.catalysechange.com

Grace Ekall will join us to inject some energy and fun into the proceedings. She has been delighting the young women at Catalyse Change's events with her dance and wellness workshops and they specifically requested that she come along to do the same at this one.

Grace who is a food entrepreneur and wellness coach here in Bristol has had an extraordinary journey from Cameroon where she was born. One in which she has been a professional dancer, a model, fashion designer, Cameroonian pop singer and even founded her own dance company by the age of 18. Grace has also beaten breast cancer twice which has led her to focus on her own health and wellness and how she can inspire and teach others to do the same.
