The full extent of Covid-19 is still unfolding but the UK has already witnessed how pre-existing inequalities have been exacerbated. The Women's Enterprise Policy Group's research indicates that women face a catastrophic future with a tsunami of job losses and business closures, unless the Government develops enterprise policy that serves women. How can economic recovery initiatives be both sustainable and inclusive?

The current situation or crisis challenges the Government to 'build back better' but what role can sustainability play in ensuring this is an opportunity for all, and to combine economic recovery in a responsible and sustainable manner? The newly announced Recovery and Renewal Deal by the North East Covid-19 Economic Response Group 'puts sustainability and decarbonisation at the core'. Helen Golightly, Chief Executive of the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NE LEP) will join us to discuss what the proposal will mean for our region, communities, people and how it will lead to a greener, more inclusive economy.

We'll also be joined by Claire Thompson from the North East England Nature Partnership (NEENP) and Capability North East whose mission is to create a thriving natural environment, providing a healthier and wealthier North East. We'll be chatting to Claire about the green economy, the opportunities to boost the economy and provide leadership to the rest of the UK and making an impact through our actions.

We often hear that 'SMEs are the backbone of our economy' and they truly are! We're delighted to be joined by Environmental Consultant and Founder of Imvelo Ltd, a provider of consultancy and training to UK businesses aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Tamma Carel.

Who is this event for?

Our network Hubs are for women, and those identifying as being female, whose work focuses in some way on building a greener, healthier or happier world, at all levels and sectors.

  • You may have been working in sustainability for a while but are looking for a change of sector or even setting up on your own
  • You could be new to sustainability and want to get prepared for the road ahead
  • You might be established in your career and wondering how you can progress and get better at making a difference, maximising your talents
  • You've had a varied career and have wisdom to share

You'll come away with inspiration, energy and new insights about your own situation, as well as strategies and tactics that supports your personal and professional development.

So many of us are juggling work with other commitments and family life. Children and pets are welcome to join and please feel free to mute your mic or turn your camera off if you prefer.

If you would like to attend but are unable to pay for a ticket during these challenging times, please contact Collaborative Projects Manager at Women In Sustainability Newcastle Hub cissie.tsang@newcastle.ac.uk
