This International Women’s Day (IWD) is your chance to engage with, and be inspired by, other successful and fearless women in a breakfast roundtable hosted by Hallam.

IWD is a Global Day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

This year’s theme is Gender Balance in Business and Nottingham is a hub of talent and success stories of powerful women who have created outstanding results in their organisations.

In this session, we bring a panel of these businesswomen together to discuss the secrets of their success, what it is to be a leading businesswoman in today’s society and how to inspire the next generation.
