From challenge comes change

When: March 4 2021

Where: Virtual, United Kingdom


Join us ahead of International Women’s Day as we #ChooseToChallenge

From challenge comes change.

And 2020 tested us beyond anything we could have imagined at the start of the year.  But without it we risk becoming complacent – when we are challenged, we are forced to think, to adapt, to innovate.

The disruptive power of Covid-19 has forced us to evaluate and reassess almost everything. Trends we thought would take a decade to take root happened within the space of weeks and months.

And as much as these were positive, lockdown also demonstrated that a lot of progress we thought we’d made was incredibly fragile and could be undone in a flash.

How do we take this moment to reset the agenda?

We move the debate from one of representation to one of genuine equality, addressing the barriers (and opportunities) that Covid-19 has highlighted for us all.

Over the course of the day we will explore:

Why we’re still having to talk about women and girls in STEM and what’s holding us back from making progress

Ways to change the stories we tell when they don’t represent us

How we can affect a genuine change in mindsets and move away from the default-male workplace

How to build the skills that allow women to access meaningful, well paid work as we move from recession to recovery

What we can learn from leadership in a crisis and apply it to our day-to-day lives.
