MARCH MEET-UP - INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY 2019

Join us for our extra special March Brighton meet-up event! This will be taking place in the meeting room at My Brighton hotel.

Held on Wednesday 13th just after International Womens' Day we are proud to be hosting a panel event with some seriously awesome special guests. The International Women's Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

Our panel will be discussing the female experience within the workplace and the issues they encounter whether that be sexism, sexual harassment, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism and how these experiences can be challenged and processed by the females who experience them and those around them who don’t.

This month’s speakers will be released very soon so watch out for our announcements on social or join our mailing list to keep in the know.

As ever at our meet-up we'll also be updating you on upcoming projects & inviting you to get involved!

You can get your hands on one of our LIMITED EDITION 'Empower, Support, Engage, Create' tote bags created in collaboration with the wonderful Tidy Print for just £6 (pay via cash or card) on the night with 50% profits going to The Red Box Project.

As always:

DON'T FORGET TO BRING YOUR TAMPON & SANITARY TOWEL DONATIONS FOR THE RED BOX PROJECT ❤️Lots more generous donations last time with one woman bringing a whole bag! Let's see if we can fill a whole box again... (FYI there's a Tesco across the road from My Brighton hotel if you need to buy your donation on the way to the event).

Please note: the meeting rooms are on the first and second floors - we should be in the Rishi room but sometimes it changes last minute. One of us aims to meet people downstairs as you arrive but if you're running late or can't spot us please get a drink from the bar and head on up in the lift.

6.45pm - Welcome from Cecily & Louisa & update on upcoming projects

6.55pm - Panel begins

9pm onwards - Join us for a drink in the Merkaba Bar downstairs at My Brighton hotel.

We’re an approachable friendly bunch and would really love you to come along & join in.
