Event description


@WomenEdLondon #Leadmeet is in recognition and celebration of The United Nations 'International Day of The Girl Child.'

We will look at the challenges that girls face and consider how women can unite to build better futures for girls in our care. We are #WomenEd so we'll also celebrate women leading educational change, empower all women to make a difference and consider what steps we need to take to ensure a fairer and brighter future for the girls we aim to inspire. A wide range of presenters will energise you and support you to drive your own leadership ambitions forward as well as supporting girls to be the change they want to see in the world.
