When will we see a woman President of the USA? A woman Governor of the Bank of England? A woman Leader of the Labour Party?

What gives the women smashing glass ceilings their motivation and resilience? Is their leadership feminist? What drives them to persist?

Join Labour Women’s Network for a thoughtful and inspiring evening looking at the personal and political attributes of women trail blazers, and which ceilings could be smashed next.

Guests include:

Olga Fitzroy, Ivor Novello Award winning sound engineer for Dreamworks and Cold Play;
Ivana Bartoletti, Head of Privacy and Data Ethics at GemServe, founder of Women Leading in AI, and Chair of the Fabian Society;
Abena Oppong-Asare, Jo Cox Women in Leadership trainer and former Community Engagement lead at Grenfell Tower (seconded from City Hall); 
Tara O’Reilly, founder of the Women in Westminster project; and 

Chaired by Madison Marriage, Financial Times journalist who broke the Presidents Club scandal.

Welcome drink included.
