Some background

As a respected figure in the sector, it is our great pleasure to cordially invite you to our 6th Annual Margaret Horn Lecture. The Margaret Horn Lecture is an annual event held by the London Early Years Foundation to debate the latest issues, developments and opportunities considered crucial to building a better future for London's childrenfamilies and communities.

In light of the current moves in the EU to legislate women on non-executive board quotas, pushing women leaders to the fore in business; and the need to balance this thinking with the knowledge that children need their mother, we are delighted to announce that Eleanor Mills will chair the expert panel speaking into this topic at the Margaret Horn Lecture. 

This year we ask the question: What are the key ingredients helping women succeed at work while balancing family commitments, and are they being recognised and implemented in the greater society. We will also look at how woman leaders in senior positions can help the ordinary woman in an ordinary job become extraordinary.

Promising to be both informative and inspiring, Eleanor will chair a panel discussion on the ingredients that help women succeed at work, along with a panel of similarly distinguished guests. For more information on the content please click here.


What else?

This event will offer you the opportunity to hear some of the latest thinking from a range of experts, share your own ideas, whilst networking with existing and new contacts.  We hope you will leave inspired and better equipped to make a difference in your own local community.

London Early Years Foundation

LEYF is the UK’s most well-known and respected childcare social enterprise, providing day care and parenting support to a diverse mix of families in 24 community, workplace and Children’s Centre nurseries across six London boroughs.

We have developed a unique social business model that uses sustainable income from our nurseries in more affluent areas to actively target the heart of some of the capital’s most deprived communities; in doing so, we make high quality day care available to families that have traditionally been unable to reach or afford it, and typically need it most of all.

We are just as committed to helping disadvantaged young adults realise their own potential. Thanks to our mentor-based Early Years apprenticeship programme, such individuals are given the chance to develop a range of vocational and interpersonal skills, with a professional qualification and in most cases a job at the end of it.
