About this event

Leeds Women's Hub Development Worker Annette will be leading the session and discussing developments designed to better diversify the hub and amplify the voices of women, ways women can get involved with the hub's existing projects and taking the opportunity to find out what you want the Hub to work on going forward.

This is an online event and you will have to have access to Zoom via a computer, laptop, phone or tablet. We will email the zoom link close to the time. Learn more about using Zoom and sign up for free here. We will send the link to the meeting when ticket allocations close two hours before the event.

Remember, the Hub is led by YOU and exists to represent all women across Leeds. We want to hear your ideas, your concerns and your passions, so that more women can get involved and work toward a Women Friendly Leeds.

Get in touch if you have any questions: AnnetteM@leedswomensaid.org.uk

Leeds Women's Hub

The Leeds Women’s and Girls Hubs were established as a mechanism for any woman or girl, independent or professional, to contribute to decision making, and to influence and shape services for women and girls across the city. The Hubs enable the engagement of women and girls, those working with women and girls and the wider women’s sector, to drive forward the priorities set by women and girls and to contribute to the vision for Leeds to be ‘The Best City’.

Both Hubs are formally recognised as Leeds Equality Hubs and are members of Leeds City Council’s Equality Assembly.

The Women’s Hub was established in March 2017 when members first came together to discuss and agree working priorities, one such being “Women’s Safety” and also to set the aim for Leeds to be “A Woman Friendly City” - the first of its kind in the U.K.
