Women, Power and Change

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Come and hear our speakers propose their idea for which one thing would make the world a fairer place for women and girls.

Speakers include Jude Kelly CBE, Artistic Director of Southbank Centre; Michael Kimmel on what would happen if men supported women; and Melanie Eusebe on why diversity matters from the Oscars to the boardroom.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, Halla Tómasdóttir is no longer able to join us.
