International Women's Day 2019 is 8 March and this year’s campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter which is about creating a more gender-balanced world.

As usual, we are also promoting upcoming events which currently include; Women into Leadership Conference which is now in its tenth year; and the Women in Law Summit, which will take place on 17 May 2019 in London which offers a set of career and personal development workshops and inspiring keynote presentations (including one from our very own Grace Ononiwu, CCP West Midlands). Our own Muslim Staff Network are hosting an event in March which will feature a panel discussion from a diverse range of inspirational Muslim women of colour and aims to inspire, motivate, educate and empower women from all backgrounds and faiths.
