Ahead of International Women’s Day next week, we got together a group of inspirational women to discuss the theme for this year - #PressforProgress. Thank you to Helen Marriage, Lisa Smosarski, Kanya King, June Sarpong, Lisa Goodchild and Samantha Morton for sharing personal stories of determination, of combating inequality and advice about how to support those around you. For me, it was a powerful reminder of how important it is that we continue our efforts to achieve genuine equality.
We also welcomed Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick who spoke with Facebook’s Gail Kent about how she has campaigned for equality for women in policing, and about the people who have helped her throughout her career in this fight. As the first female to take the role leading Scotland Yard, Cressida is a great role model for women looking to succeed in what have traditionally been seen as male professions.
And Oh Jocelyn Brown, you were so powerful on stage. We just couldn’t resist! 400 women on their feed dancing at 10.30am!!
We all have a role to play in creating a fair world for everyone and events like this are not only important reminders of how far we still need to go, but also vital to energise and motivate us behind this issue.
