Event description
How to Have a Powerful Voice

About this Event

Women in Sustainability (WINS) exists to help women flourish in careers that are building a sustainable world. This event will focus on both progressing and being heard in organisational environments in order to embed sustainability across corporations. This will be a friendly, informal and highly interactive session in which our speakers will facilitate conversations about the challenges and opportunities we face, and share their wealth of experience.

The speakers are highly influential and impactful women, who'll be sharing their insights and tips on what you should be thinking about and practising, in order to have a powerful voice.

Adding to the mix the usual 'Women in Sustainability' approach of getting you connecting and working together, this will be a highly engaging session that you simply can't afford to miss!

The Women in Sustainability Network is already established with Network Hubs in London, Oxford, Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle.

As ever there will be the space and opportunity to network and share experiences with colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!

Speakers confirmed are:

Anne Johnson: Anne is a Partner at Malcolm Hollis LLP, one of the leading independent building consultancies operating in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe and is Head of the Environment, Energy and Sustainability service. She is Past Chair of the UK Environmental Law Association (UKELA), the UK’s leading membership organisation for anyone interested in environmental law, a member of the Scottish board of the Investment Property Forum and a member of the Scottish Vacant and Derelict Land taskforce. She has twenty years’ experience in environmental consultancy during which time she has worked on a huge range of projects, everything from remediating a gas works in London to North Sea oil platform decommissioning. Her main focus now is in driving her business towards being net zero carbon before 2050, supporting women in her industry and encouraging young girls to do STEM.

Jo Jeffreys: Jo studied Geology and Physical Geography at the University of Liverpool before accepting a job with Jacobs in 2013. She has worked in various roles before joining the Sustainability Centre of Excellence to help develop Jacobs’ new global Sustainability Strategy, PlanBeyond. Jo has recently taken up the role of PlanBeyond Engagement Manager in Glasgow and will join us on the night to speak about her personal experiences of being gay in a professional services firm and why LGBT+ equality is important from a sustainability perspective.

Sophie Rivett-Carnac: Sophie has been helping businesses across environmental, sustainable and ethical sectors communicate their vision and values for over a decade. From outlining the importance of renewable energy to consumers to extolling the benefits of a circular economy to multinational retailers, she’s always loved taking complicated messages and making them relevant - and meaningful - to the right audience.

At this event, she’ll be reflecting on the changed media landscape for businesses that work in the sustainability sector and how the right message, medium and moment is still critical if you want to have your voice heard.

You can expect a friendly welcome, stimulating conversations over hot drinks and snacks, and a way of networking that helps you make meaningful connections with other women working across the sustainability sector(s).
