Event details

Will you #EmbraceEquity in 2023? Can you imagine a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination? A gender-equal world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive? Join us this #IWD2023 and collectively celebrate all women’s achievements and specifically in the world of business.

This International Women’s Day help us to achieve the International Women’s Day 2023 Missions and take action for equality in the workplace as we ask:

  • What does #EmbraceEquity mean to you?
  • Why is equality in the world of business important to you as a woman?
  • How have you incorporated equity into your workplace?

Make sure you are part of this engaging and inclusive event by  supporting the women in your life, be it your wife, daughter, mum,  sister, boss, colleague or friend – reach out and show them your  appreciation.

This session will be hosted in partnership with the University of  Sunderland, exploring the key themes, opportunities and challenges impacting Women in Enterprise, in support of International Women's Day  2023.

Hosted by Prof. Abigail Moriarty,  Pro-Vice Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of  Sunderland, this event will bring together inspirational women in  leadership and enterprise from across the UK, discussing their journeys,  achievements, and the barriers they overcame.
